Imposing white monument depicting Lajos Kossuth, well worth stopping and taking a picture or two then move on as there are other attractions in this area.

Visited on Monday 9th October. While doing a tour of the Parliament Building we came across this new monument outside and stopped to have a look. Recommend you do the same.

Situation adjacent to the Parliament building and next to the Danube these couple of Statues dedicated to Lajos Kossuth stand proudly. They are very detailed and interesting. Any visit to the Parliament area could easily fit in a visit around these statues.

When you plan your visit to the Parliament, plan enough time because besides the building itself, the grounds and monuments and statutes are plentiful, even if just to take a look. Each one has its own importance and significance in Hungarian history. Kossuth was a...More

Behind the parliament building, a nice statue. I don't know history of lajos kossuth, but that seems he was a hungarian hero. The place of statue can be seen by everybody visiting parliament.
