Ferenciek Square: Busy square with beautiful palaces
Ferenciek Square is located on the Pest side of the Elizabeth Bridge, home to many end-of-century architectural masterpieces.
Ferenciek Square is divided into two by Kossuth Lajos Street, which is one of the busiest roads in Budapest.
The most important buildings include the two buildings of Klotild Palace on both sides of the road. (Locals call the two palaces Matild and Klotild) The Klotild palaces were built between 1899-1902.
The facade of the dazzlingly decorated Parisian courtyard is also impressive, but the inner courtyard is the most special part of the building. Construction of the building was completed in 1912. (Today there is a hotel in the building, but the inner courtyard can be seen.)
The Franciscan Church was built in 1743, and the square was named after it.
The Fountain of the Nereids in front of the church and the University Library are also among the sights of Ferenciek Square
