To watch the FIFA World Cup together with a crowd of hundreds, maybe thousands of others in Budapest, then Szabadsag square (Liberty Square) is a good bet. Located between the Hungarian Parliament and the St. Stephen’s Basilica, there you will find two large screens and lots of international football fans.
Akvárium (Erzsébet tér 12.) is also a top choice, as good match atmosphere can usually be found at this popular venue in the middle of the city next to Deák Square, plus Champs Sziget Beergarden (on Margit Island) and Westend Roof Terasz (Váci út 1-3.) are other good options for outdoor viewing.
