Budapest abounds in historic monuments, often heroic figures astride charging steeds. This tribute to Nagy is so understated it actually emphasizes the enormous contribution and tragic fate of this hero

What a delightful and fun looking statue on a footbridge this was to see, located across the road on the southern end of Kossuth Lajos Square near the Hungarian Parliament Building, it constantly draws a small crowd of tourists. Imre Nagy was Prime Minister of...More

This statue gazes back on the Parliament Building with a forsaken look. Nagy led the uprising against the Soviet occupation in 1956. For his efforts, he was executed and his body thrown in an unmarked grave.

A reminder to a great politician and a symbol of resolve in the eye of totalitarianism. Highly recommend to lookup his part in history.

We came the monument to Imre Nagy/ Remembrance Day just by chance. Representing Freedom and Peace. It really makes you think. Well done to the sculptor you have made such a different monument.

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
