One of Budapest’s most impressive squares is Heroes’ Square. This square, created in 1896 to celebrate the thousandth anniversary of the Hungarian “land name” and located at the end of Andrássy Boulevard, is dominated by the Millennium Monument.

The millennium monument consists of a tall column with the archangel Gabriel on top holding Hungary’s national symbols. In front of the column are the statues of seven Hungarian chieftains. In the semicircle are statues of famous Hungarians and heroes of Hungarian history. Heroes’ Square is not to be missed when in Budapest.

If you go on a Saturday or Sunday in spring or summer, you’ll see a lot of Hungarian families having picnics and resting in the shaded areas of this magnificent green space.
