This square was called Salt Square until the middle of the 19th century, referring to Buda and Pest (separate towns at the time) as a meeting point for merchants coming from the East and the West.  The neo-renaissance Main Customs House was built between 1871-1874 by the famous Hungarian architect, Miklós Ybl. This building is now headquarters to the Corvinus University of Budapest. You can also find the Great Market Hall here, where you can do your shopping of fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as fine Hungarian salami and wines.

There are lots of things to do in Budapest! With City Sightseeing, you get to visit the main landmarks across the strategically located bus stops. Hop on and off as many times as you wish to take the tour at your own pace or stay on the bus and enjoy the audio guide in multiple languages full of interesting facts. Sightseeing the city from the double-decker buses is comfortable and dynamic, just hop off every time you spot something you would like to explore further and then hop back on!
