The Budapest council on Thursday expressed its “surprise” that ownership of the square, a central spot in the Inner City, should be transferred to the state, and insisted that the body had not been consulted prior to the change. Under the law, the 2.6 hectare square itself and three adjacent properties would have been transferred to the state on December 15, free of charge.
The justification of the law says the square as a public park would thus be handled and operated “in a unified way”.
