It's not in the city centre, but it was easy to find, easy by metro. Local friend tipped me to visit, and no regrets. Interesting place!

This monument is a memento of the vanished greatness of Hungary. It was evolved during the history. It was set in 1895, but the status had been finished by 1911. It's worth to visit it.

Walking across the Adrassy street we found the Heroes' square! It's a nice square for pictures. You could find some museums and a really impressive castle in about 300-400m! In addition there is a lake in 100m distance were you could rent boat-bike and ride around the lake! It's awesome!

I have been seeing photos and paintings of this monument for years. I couldn't wait to see it in person and let my own camera speak.

It's beautiful at night with all the lightings. There is a metro station just 50m away from the square. It has nice statues of the historic people. Interesting and beautiful

Don't miss it. Try early morning or evening and you just might get it to yourself. Statues are truly impressive and it's worth reading up on Hungarian history before going. This is near the ice rink and a short distance from the popular bath house.

The Agricultural Museum is across the lawn (Vajdahunyad Castle). 2 Art museums flank the square. The Budapest Zoo is nearby and a must see especially because of the elephant house.
