It's a very central square, very close to Vörösmarty Ter, Erzsébet (Elizabeth) Ter and the Vici Utca shopping area. It has changed several names. Danube in 1840, Redoutenplatz, Vigarda, Molotov space, until 1957 when it had the original name Vigadó again. In the centre the bronze fountain Vizcsorgato Children's Well since 1896, by sculptor Charles Senya and architect Frederick Feszl.... More

Cute little square with a fountain and sculptures, directly across from a gorgeous building. Nice place to sit and relax.

This well trafficked place is a gathering spot in the city. There appears to be a lot of people coming and going here especially in good weather. I liked to watch the outfits that the many varied types of people are attired in.

Vigado Concert Hall has just been finished and is now open. The square is amazing and the Duna Corso Restaurant is worth enjoying a meal outside while listening to the lovely violin music.Inside has two styles of decor and it works really well. Excellent service and 5* experience when we dined there. The number 2 tram stops here. STAY AWAY... More

Not far from the popular Vososmarty Square, you can find the smaller Vigado Square (Vigado ter) located on the Danube Promenade. This is a small public space found in front of the Vigado Concert Hall, facing the Danube River and Promenade. The building features nice blend of architectural styles and there is a late 19th century fountain statue in the... More

the park was somewhat littered by the homeless and just did not have a vibrant feel like a decade ago. It did not help that the Vigado concert/opera hall was closed and was undergoing from what it looked like to us, an extensive remodeling. I really love the Vigado Ter but not what it has become

Situated on the Pest side, the Danube promenade, this place is always full of tourists. But still it has a nice atmosphere, because of the Vigado building, the nice little park in front of it and of course the view to the Castle.

Nice square in the city center, on the Pest side of the Danube. Hold your camera ready, because the World Heritage sites include the Budapest Danube panorama! Nearby you can get up to tram 2 which go this route. The Vigadó is a 19h century beautiful building with a hall for cultural and entertainment events.
