Lot of history - the statue complex shows seven chieftains of magyars and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The square lies at tone end of andrassy avenue next to city park. It has the museum of fine arts, city park and vajdahunyad castle. The square has played an important part in contemporary Hungarian history and has been a host... More

Although I've been many squares in many countries, maybe out of nationalism, this is my favourite one. I always had the feeling visiting a square that it is smaller than I imagined (e.g. Trafalgar Square). Heroes Square is huge and easily accessible in the heart of the city, close to many other attractions. One of my first choices to show... More

We walked all the way from the city centre to the Heroes Square, it took us at least an hour but it worth the effort! I believe is the most important attraction where you can see many iconic statue complex such as the Seven Chieftains of the Magyars and other important national leaders, as well as the Tomb of the...

It is always difficult to create a huge place and make it even nice, in this case the mission can be definetely considered accomplished. Even if so huge, its majesty is not the best thing of this square. If I had to choose, the wonderful and incredibly well made statues are without any doubt its best thing.

Just for context, my wife and I are in our early 30s and are somewhat well-traveled. Worth a visit for sure. Nice statues and a park in the rear of the memorial. There's also a bath house in the park, so make an afternoon of it during your stay. Metro takes you right there.

This is a very historic site with a lot of information about the origins of Hungary, but you need to do your homework to really appreciate who all of these statues represent. You only need 15 minutes to have a look and review your tour book or listen to your guide.

Although surrounded by busy streets, it's really worth seeing. The size of the columns is pretty impressive.

Nice attraction on the way to the thermal baths. Good for photographs or a good meeting point! Very pretty! Not much to do round here, there are some art galleries / museums
