Main Customs Square
Feb 2020
This small square, takes its name from the merchants that would frequent the area, selling there wares in the central market, (with its beautiful facade and grand interior), the square also has the beautiful liberty bridge spanning the danube at this point. All in all it is a square not to be missed on the visitors list.

A decent square.
Nov 2019
While this square has nothing to really offer most of the year, it was rather lovely this time around with a small Christmas market in it.

A pleasant small Pest square!
Jun 2019
We discovered this small square on the Pest side of the river during our first morning in Budapest. We had been shopping in the Central Market Hall where it was quite hot and humid. Consequently, we were in need of somewhere to get some fresh air and to cool off a bit.
When we emerged from the market hall, we spotted this small square just across the main road and so we crossed over to check it out.
One section of the small square is occupied by a children’s play area. Therefore, on this Saturday morning, there were a few family groups with small children gathered there. In another part of there is a small memorial to a Hungarian army regiment.
We spent our time in the area of the square adjacent to the play area sitting on a concrete wall bordering a garden bed and under the shade of some small spreading trees.
It was a nice, relatively quiet place to briefly rest our feet and to spend a bit of time cooling off in the shade of the trees.

Cooling missed / Old fashioned
Aug 2019 • Family
It is 34 degrees outside. No airco (energized by solar panels on roof) with this heat selling food????? Old fashioned set up of market hall. Look at Rotterdam and change set up. Adapt to 21ste century.

Square near Market Hall
Mar 2019 • Couples
Visited Fovam Square as part of the City Sightseeing Hop On Hop Off Bus Tours. From the river you have the square to your left, the main market hall across the road on the right hand side. From top left corner you enter a main pedestrian zone street full of restaurants and souvenir shops

Huge Market!
Nov 2018 • Couples
We love to go to these markets in cities we visit. Fovam is by far the largest one we've been to. There are so many vendors and so much to look at. I was looking for souvenir T-shirts and found exactly what I wanted upstairs at a good price.

Gateway to many interesting places
Dec 2017 • Couples
Fovam ter is a gateway to my interesting places eg. the Main Market, the River Danube.
There is also a M4 metro station in here.
It is an ideal place for exploring Budapest in Pest or walking to Buda side as well.
