Heroes Square - Review
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.

Heroes Square, Budapest Reviews
Beautiful and massive square. The sculptures are breathtaking and I was fortunate enough to be there around sunset so I got to see two sides of Heroes' square, the natural, day light version and also the lit up at night version and both are beautiful. As are the buildings near it. The whole thing is quite impressive and there are no hawkers or any other kind of "touristy" disturbances even though there are huge numbers of tourists there. It's a wonderful way to respect the monument and the heroes. There is a beautiful park and tiny lake around with fountains which was also wonderful to walk through.
The hero square in Budapest is such a stunning place to visit. It's so magnificent and I love the statues. It’s great to go at daytime as well as night time, you will be able to get a different sense of the place! We love going in night time coz it’s much more calm and peaceful. Strolling around the square and embracing the history of Budapest is an awesome to end the day!
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.
Besides the Statue of Freedom, this attraction symbolizes the pinnacle of Hungarian freedom, when the Pope in 1991 declared in that very square Hungary's state of liberty, thus turning into the most typical and important monument in the city. It's huge, often crowded but very easy to get by and arrive, as there is strategic bus station located very close ( we tourists do not complain). Must take a closer look at this history infused square!
Lovely area with great views. Close to the metro line so travel is no problem. Amazing statues and you can feel the place is soaked in history. There are many attractions close by such as miniature castles and a picturesque park with thermal baths. Worth a visit as there is lots to see and do.
