The Heroes Square in Budapest, Hungary

It was again one of the most interesting trips I had in Europe. Visiting the capital city of Hungary was again another memorable travel experience. Budapest is a must-see when visiting Europe.

One of the sights we visited was the Heroes Square. It is called as Hősök tere in Hungarian and is the most representative square of Budapest. It is rich with historic and political connotations. The square is is surrounded by two important buildings, Museum of Fine Arts on the left and Palace of Art (or more accurately Hall of Art) on the right.

The central site of the hero's square, as well as a landmark of Budapest, is the Millennium Memorial (also known as Millennium Monument or Millenary Monument) with statues of the leaders of the seven tribes that founded Hungary in the 9th century and other outstanding figures of Hungarian history.
