I didn't know much about Hungarian history but learned a bit from Mikka, our Free Walking Tour (Communist) guide. I've since googled him. Our guide explained that the statue is facing the parliament building, symbolising his commitment to Hungary, and he stands on tank tracks, symbolising the Soviet invasion and the trampling of human rights. Very interesting.

I really liked this monument...it's different and a bit quirky. The way it is lit at night makes for a good photo.

I've a soft spot for Imre Nagy and was delighted to find his statue unexpectedly here, along with his commemorative tombstone in the Parisian Père Lachaise Cemetery.

My husband left Hungary in 1956 as a 13 year old boy, this memorial to Imre Nagy is such a beautiful piece of sculpture, its a very moving spot especially to Hungarians, who normally have a tear in their eye as they stand next to him. Most people have their picture taken stood next to Imre Nagy.

he became the leader in the rise against Stalin. For that he was put on trial by that regime and executed. Not until after the Cold War ended was he given the deserved acknowledgement by his country men.. This is a wonderful and much photographed spot that has his statue on a metal bridge that is virtually across the Hungarian... More

Nice art to see on your way to the Parliament. We were on a rainy day, and the message was still delivered. Should do on a sunny bright day if possible.

Across the street and kitty corner from the massive Hungarian parliament as you walk towards the US embassy, you find a metal bridge with a life size statue of an older man in spectacles, looking wistfully towards the parliament building. Hungary's Imre Nagy, who reluctantly became the leader of the 1956 uprising against Stalin and was subsequently put on trial,... More

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
