A lovely monument and perfectly situated in front of parliament. It's important to read up about the 1956 uprising to understand the significance of this monument.

The statue of Imre Nagy on an iron/bronze bridge in deep contemplation looking forlornly towards the Parliament building is something that is a blink and a miss kind of installation - so unless you have read about it earlier and make it a point to see if you might easily miss it. That said though its quite conveniently located right... More

Behind the parlament, you can find that statue on a bridge. You have to wait in a line to take a picture with it. Nothing special, but cool to see. There is grocery store in the near.

He stands resolutely looking at the Parliament building which was the site of him speaking publicly and attempting to lead the Hungarian people to a better, freer life under communism the early 50s. Sadly his efforts led to a sham trial and his execution.... More

Nagy has a long history in this country and it us nice to see this memorial of him, looking to the parliament building. He wanted to fit into communism but felt for the people it oppressed. A man torn is what I see here. He finally decided to fight the regime and help the anti Soviet movement, but one wonders... More

There's a long history behind Nagy and his place in Hungarian history. After studying him for many years I was pleasantly surprised to see him here.

One of the things you can see in the historic city centre of Budapest is the intriguing statue of Imre Nagy standing on a small bridge, facing the Hungarian Parliament building. The statue is situated around halfway between Parliament and Liberty Square. Unfortunately, there is no information or plague posted in the area so you'll need to read up in... More

I decided to see this monument after reading about Imre Nagy. The bridge is also a work of art and i am glad i took the time to see it. Well worth it.

Yes it is a statue on a bridge. For me it was not that special. There probably is a long story behind this, but for me it was just a statue, it was nice though.
