Szechenyi Istvan Square

Sometimes it can be hard to keep up with the ever changing names of Budapest parks, roads and squares. One of the latest renaming has been the renaming of Roosevelt Square (Roosevelt tér) to Szechenyi Istvan Square (Széchenyi István tér).

What is now Széchenyi István tér is close to the Danube on the east side of the river near to the Szechenyi Chain Bridge (Széchenyi Lánchíd).

It is one of the main traffic interchanges in Budapest’s V district so there is quite a bit of traffic but it is still well worth a visit and practically unavoidable if you plan to walk around the centre of Budapest and along the banks of the Pest side of the Danube.

The square is notable as it is the home to three of the best luxury hotels in Budapest, the Intercontinental Hotel Budapest, the Sofitel Chain Bridge and the Four Seasons Gresham Palace.

Gresham Palace is a historical landmark in its own right too due to its association with the founders of the Royal Exchange in London.
