Heroes' Square - Hosok Tere, Budapest: 116 reviews and 242 photos
The Heroes square was built for the millenary festivities, but some statues were changed in the XX.century. The square was finished in reality only in 1929, and it recieved it`s name only in this year.
At the centre we can see a 36 meters tall column, wich was projected by Albert Schickedanz. The monument is 85 meters wide and 25 meters long. We can see here the sculptures 7 chieftains who conquered the territory of Hungary (you see them around the obelisque), 14 important personalities of the Hungarian history (mostly kings), four allegorical statues (peace, war, work and prosperity), and finally the tomb of the unknown soldier.
This square is surely one of Budapest`s highlights.
