Heroes' Square - Hosok Tere, Budapest: 116 reviews and 242 photos
Hősök tere is one of the major squares of Budapest. It lies at the end of Andrássy Avenue (with which it comprises part of the World Heritage), next to City Park. The central sight of the 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 (see below). The construction of the memorial was started when the one thousandth anniversary was celebrated (in 1896), but it was finished only in 1929 and the square got its name then.
