Hosok Tere or Heroes’ square in Budapest is a beautiful monument that attracts a lot of tourists in Budapest. The square commemorates the arrival of the first people who formed the nation of Hungary to the capital. In this sense, it is the most powerful symbol of Hungary in itself.  Since it was built to commemorate 1000 years of the settlement of people in Hungary it is also called the Millennium monument. This square right next to City Park has become quite iconic.

There are two arches with Corinthian columns and a 38 meters tall column in the centre. The arches or rather colonnades are adorned with bronze statues of the Nation’s heroes. Each personality depicted here has made a significant contribution to the history of Hungary. Moreover, there is tremendous symbolism in all the statues. The statue of the arch angel Gabriel stands on top of the central column.

This monument is extremely important to the country and hence a must visit. The Museum of Fine arts and the Palace of arts flank the square on either side making it all the more popular with tourists.

  • Just another interesting place in Budapest) You can find a lovely Park with castle behind it... And another Christmas Fair. And ice rink) I would recommend to visit this place. And you know, in the city center just take a metro. Metro line to this place is the oldest in the whole city. And metro-trains seem like old-fashioned trams)

  • Impressive monument. You'll make the visit much more interesting if you read up some Hungarian history beforehand. Fun thing: look for a horned horse ;)

  • Lot of history in a few square meters. Emotional and beautiful artwork. Close to many other sightseeing worthy places, and just a 20 min bus ride from the city centre. It's difficult to find it without tourists, so pictures can't be site ready.

  • The place has a grand feeling. The central tower is beautiful. There are statues of national heroes of Budapest along the two side structures. There is a big empty space in front which adds to the grandeur of the setting. The place is visited by most tourists. There is a lake and a park next to it which can also be visited when going to Heroes' square.

  • This place is very good. There are several events planned here. The latest was National Gallop. The horse race was held and loved that event a lot. This place has a large free area. In free time, it is very relaxing to go and pay a visit. Have a peace of mind.
