    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.

    Large square that dates from the days of the Hapsburgs but was used more recently for communist demonstrations and rallies. Contains the Museum of Fine Arts and the Palace of Arts

    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.

    Hosok Tere or Hero Square at the end of Andrassy Ut is a splendid town square that commemorates the 7 chieftains who brought the Magyar tribe to Hungary. One of the most visited places in Buda. Truly fantastique.

    It's a really stunning square surrounded by old, beautiful buildings. The statues are fascinating, they kind of reminded me of the Ringwraiths from The Lord of the Rings.

    Pretty much the 'centre' of the Pest side of Budapest. Great monument to the Magyars nobility who ruled Hungary for nearly a thousand years.

    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.

    Don't miss the Andrássy út. It's a UNESCO world heritage site. Nice buildings, plus the oldest section of Budapest Metro, built just under the surface. At the end of the avenue you can find the Városliget park and two museums.

    Площадь героев расположена в конце бульвара Андраши. Неподалеку располагаются знаменитые купальни Сечени, замок Вайдахуняд и самые большие в Европе песочные часы.

    This was a short stop on our tour of Pest. The square has the Millennial Column set off by equestrian statues of historic ninth-century Magyar leaders who conquered this region. It seems to be a very popular place for tour groups based on the number of buses and tourists.

    Completed in the dying days of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Heroes' Square centers on the Millennium Memorial, with statues of the leaders of the seven tribes that founded Hungary in the Middle Ages. Though not pretty by any means, a landmark stop on any first-time visit to Budapest.

    Andrássy Avenue is an iconic boulevard in Budapest, Hungary, dating back to 1872. It links Elizabeth Square with the City Park. Lined with spectacular Neo-renaissance mansions and townhouses featuring fine facades and interiors, it was recognised as a World Heritage Site in 2002. It is also one of Budapest's main shopping streets, with fine cafes, restaurants, theatres, and luxury boutiques. We were fortunate to stay just off this street, and spent many hours strolling in both directions.

    If going here also check out the water pools and baths where the locals hang out! Check out the musicians that wonder around too. Plenty of picture opportunities.

    Long, wide boulevard running from Varosliget to the city center. Walking down this street gives you a good feel for being in Budapest, as opposed to feeling like you are walking into monument after monument. Although, you will find several monuments on this street (such as the State Opera House and the House of Terror).

Description

The Archangel Gabriel looks over Hősök tere (“Heroes’ Square”) in Budapest. Surrounding him are the seven chiefs of the Magyar tribes that once lived in this part of town. The plaza is a war memorial, a popular attraction for both tourists and skaters, bordered by several art museums. Completed during the turn of the 20th century, the square’s rich history takes it through Soviet-era Budapest.
