Budapest is full of interesting, if somewhat unexpected, memorials to the past. This memorial is in the form of a metal bridge arched over a small pool of water. The rather sad-looking man, whose statue stands in the middle of the bridge, is meant to be Imre Nagy, the communist leader of the Hungarian government that tried to break away... More

An interesting statue, interestingly placed on a bridge. We came across it like others walking around the Parliament building. Worth a look as is Parliament.

This was one of the nicest monuments we saw over the course of our stay but it was let down a little by the lack of water underneath it. Perhaps we were just off season. It was very pretty all the same just could have been that little bit better. Situated between Parliament and the American Embassy, you're likely to... More

Walked past this on the way to see Parliament on Hungary's Independence day on March 15. Lots of folks were getting their picture made with the statue,holding flags and wearing the buttons in the Hungarian colors. It was interesting just how patriotic everyone was.

I haven't been in a while in this part of Budapest and I must say they did very nice job arranging and decorating it, from Szabadsag ter to the Parliament building. One of the attractions is this monument, to Imre Nagy. Too bad there isn't any panel with information or a sign board to whom in honor is this monument... More

situated on a small metal bridge in the square adjacent to parliament building. Imre Nagy is looking thoughtful. Famous for taking on the communists and trying to free Hungary from their rule. Well worth a visit.

The statue of Imre Nagy is facing the Parliament symbolizing exactly what he fought for - independence and democracy. A nice area to hang around during the day. It is situated in Martyr's square.

This beautifully done statue of Imre Nagy, standing on a bridge and overlooking the Parliament, symbolizes his great contribution to the Hungarian state. There are quite a few amazing memorials in Budapest, but this one stands out.

A well deserved memorial to a man who had the courage to stand up to tyranny knowing full well that no one had his back. He and the Hungarian people were the first to crack open the Iron Curtain. They paid a heavy toll, but in the end history was on their side.

The statue is standing on a bridge very close to the parliament, definitely you stop there and shoot some pictures... that day we had a guide who explained historically the meaning of this monument.
