Heroes square is beautiful with a large monument in the middle. We didn't spend a lot of time here but we did visit it again at night at it was pretty all lit up. I would highly recommended to visit it at night also.

The monument itself is really high and it is nice to look at, but you won't need too much time at the site. On both sides of the monument there are museums, which makes for a nice framing.

I have been 3 times and learn a bit more every time about Hungarian history. Our guide gave us a very good overview of every person represented on monuments on the square. If you have time check out the surrounding museums.

I have visited this sight many many many times, and it never ceases to impress me. It is a Budapest must-see. Any and all visitors I've taken have found it fascinating. It's worth having a good guide book or printing out info on the figures represented and reading them as you move from statue to statue. The statues tell the... More

Heroes square is a worth seeing attraction and photo opportunity but only for a quick stopover. We visited on the way to the park and the zoo and would recommend including other places in the vicinity to justify a journey to the square.

its in the middle of a busy round a bout, the statues are nice, but as we had no guide it was a bit boring. you could prob spend 15-20 minutes here at the most.

It is frankly a must see in Hungary. It is wedged between two art museums, so it isn't as if it is in the middle of no where. Take your time and enjoy the space.

We were impressed by this dedication to the fallen heroes' of the war. The plaza was stunning and the whole place gave you a sense of humility and brought home the sacrifices of those that died on our behalf. Lest we forget!

Beautiful buildings to either side, in the middle the Heroes' Monuments in a massive open space. Its size means despite the throngs of tourists there's still plenty of space to move around and take photos. One to see on foot rather than from a tour bus, in order to appreciate the space in all its glory.

What a beautiful space! Huge open space that lends so much majesty to the Hungarian hero's it is meant to honor. Best done on foot, so you can wander and touch and get the real "feel" of the place. I'm sure that a tour is a good idea for something which so much historical value, although we did not take... More
