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.

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.

Very nice monument of a key historical figure in relatively recent Hungarian history - Imre Nagy. 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
