Hosok Tere or Heroes Square is located at the end of Andrassy Street and in front of the City Park. Sculptures of Hungarian heroes are on display here. On the left are the kings of Hungary while on the right are its generals. Incidentally, Matthias Corvinus who stands on the right was also a king. In the middle of the heroes is a column topped with the arcangel Gabriel. In his right hand he holds the Holy crown of St. Stephen, the first king of Hungary. In his left he holds the Hungarian Cross, a symbol given to St. Stephen by the Pope. In front of the column is a large stone cenotaph surrounded by an iron chain. The cenotaph is dedicated "To the memory of the heroes who gave their lives for the freedom of our people and our national independence." Hosok Tere is a beautiful square which the people of Budapest are very proud of.
