The most iconic part of this square is the Ferris Wheel which is not a must do. The square is centrally located and close to Deak Ferenc station. It has some grassed area and concrete were a lot of people where skateboarding.
It was fairly lively and had an average amount of people at most times of the day.
It had some sculptures and memorials. Would only take about 10 mins to see it.

Passed through Elisabeth Square (Erzsébet tér) a few times in early March 2023. Lively area in the city with historical statues, a park, ferris wheel and street food vendors. Not too far from St. Stephen's Basilica (Szent István Bazilika).

This park is located in the heart of Central City of Pest with two large areas of green spaces. It’s a vibrant, lively square with cafes, a grassy expanse, a large reflecting pool and site of the Budapest Eye Ferris wheel. The Ferris wheel ride is quite nice as you get to see panoramic view of the downtown area. There are bench seats under large shady trees that allow people to take a break in the hot summer.

The two significant historic things in the square are; the old bus station and the Danubius Fountain, designed by Miklós Ybl. These beautiful statues of stone represent the main rivers of the country, i.e., Danube, Tisza, Drava, and the Sava. The pedestrian street Vaci Utica is adjacent to the square. Some of the most beautiful buildings in the city are around the square.

There is a also fountain at one end that has a plexiglass bottom that makes the ceiling of the a bar/restaurant down below.

This central square is indeed very beautiful and has lots going for it. It is all action and there’s always something to see and do.

Take care as you will be in close contact with scooters, bikes and goodness knows whatever. The roads around it take some crossing as well as they are busy and the traffic is on the other side of the road then what we are used to!

Having said all that, there are some of the most beautiful buildings in the city around the square and lots of great bars, restaurants and shops so it is definitely worth visiting.

Family Park - for all ages.
Very well maintained providing facilities that if you wish to escape the "maddening crowds" that can be at times found in this park, there are places to sit back, relax and take in the pleasures that Elizabeth Square. provide.
The magnificent fpuntain in the central area of the park - originallt placed center in the road area of Kelvin ter, but damaged during the Second World War, then with the re-developement of Kelvin ter, building of the metro, the fountain, after decades of being placed in retirement repaired and gloriously sits for ALL to adorn in the center of Elizabeth Square.
Sculptured by a World renowed artist - Miklos Ybi - titled the Danubius Fountain - it may be a replication of the original that was destroyed at Kelvin ter, during those "infamous" years but it is - Masterful.

This is an ordinary and centrally located square (just next to Deak square and the Ritz Carlton hotel), with some bars, a couple of small shops, a nice fountain and the Budapest Eye Ferris wheel.

If you like to use public transportation when you travel I recommend the metro system of Budapest. This is where Metro lines M1, M2 and M3 meet underground very close and it is called Deak Ferenc Ter, and next to it is this park
That is where "Budapest Eye" is located - a wheel ride- and if you like to go up you get a panoramic view of the downtown area. There are shops, ice cream parlors, pubs and a few restaurants. It is hard to tell where Deak Ferec Square ends and where Elizabeth Square begins. I thought it was one big square with many sections. The fountain was fenced when we were there in August and the end of Septmeber and beginning of Oct 2019 for repairs, so I didn't even take a photo. We went once for a meal in one of the restaurants but there were no more outdoor seats and then a very polite server lead us to the inside, where we basically were alone in a very ran down area with cheap looking and not very clean tables and chairs, so after a few minutes we left....We never attempted to eat at the square again, but it is a lovely place to walk at night as it is extremely lively with people of all ages coming and going...during the day many young people come and spend time together here, nice to see and very nice to be in this square any time.
