The grandness and open space leaves you in awe. Loads of historical and political connections to this area. I really recommend a visit.

This is one of the most visited attractions in Budapest. Soaring above Heroes' Square is the Millennium Column, the focal point of the Millennium Monument. The column is topped with a statue of the archangel Gabriel.

Hero Square is one of the more prominent landmarks in Pest. The monument in the center depicts the original Magyar chieftains who conquered the Danubian plain and founded Hungary. The statues along the surrounding arcade are images of Hungaria kings and other notable historic figures. In front of the monument is Andrassy Avenue while behind the square is one of Budapest's main parks.
During the communist era May Day parades were held in Hero Square.

We saw Heroes' Square in passing while walking along Andrássy Avenue. It's a monument dedicated to those who gave their lives for the freedom of the Hungarian people and features columned tributes to several famed heroes of Hungary.

A must see while in the area. There's a story behind each statue and monument. Make sure to take a local guide with you to explain all the history!

Hősök tere (meaning "Heroes' Square" in Hungarian) is one of the major squares of Budapest, Hungary, rich with historic and political connotations. Its iconic statue complex, the Millennium Memorial, was completed in 1900, the same year the square was named "Heroes' Square". It lies at the end of Andrássy Avenue (with which it comprises part of an extensive World Heritage site), next to City Park.
