A new virtual tour of Kossuth Square around the Hungarian Parliament building has been released. The virtual space includes a collection of rarely seen films and less known facts to offer visitors a deeper understanding of the Hungarian nation's main square, its buildings and memorials.

Kossuth Square is now open for a virtual visit, allowing those interested to broaden their knowledge of the Hungarian nation's main square in a playful way by answering a series of questions – reads a statement sent to the MTI by the Public Collections and Public Education Directorate of the Office of the National Assembly.

The statement highlights that visitors can explore the famous areas of the Parliament building and Kossuth Lajos Square online. Those interested can take a virtual walk around the parliament building, tour the Parliament building itself, learn about its museums and understand the memorials on Kossuth Square.
