Must-See Budapest Tourist Attractions

9Heroes’ Square

We continue our list with one of the major squares in Budapest, Heroes’ Square or Hosok tere.

The square is popular for its iconic statues, including the Seven Chieftains of the Magyars and other national leaders, as well as the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

Located next to City Park, at the end of Andrassy Avenue (which by the way, you have to visit that too), Heroes’ Square hosts Mucsarnok  (meaning Hall of Art of Palace of Art) and the Museum of Fine Arts.
If you have some free time, we recommend those too.

Many political events took place here, as the square played an important part in contemporary Hungarian history. One of those significant events took place in 1989, the reburial of Imre Nagy.

On the left collonade you’ll find statues depicting Stephen I, Ladislaus I, Coloman, Andrew II, Bela IV, Charles I, and Louis I, all of Hungary.
While the right colonnade features John Hundyadi, Matthias Corvinus, Istvan Bocskay, Gabriel Bethlen, Imre Thokoly, Francis II Rakoczi and Lajos Kossuth.
