Based on my research on trip advisor I wanted to visit here, we came via the metro. This area is huge and such a photographic area, so much history. As we visited during the winter this area has one of the biggest outdoor ice skating rinks I have seen and so busy (the ice skating rink is only there in the winter) if you go beyond the ice skating rink there is a beautiful building and park to walk through

This square is totally grand and imposing - capturing all the important figures in Hungarian history. We took a walking tour and were given insights into who each statue represents and it was all very interesting. It is a great area to explore and very different from the rest of the city.

Walked here in the snow storm, on the way to the circus - that in itself was fun. Was here last August and was hot sunny then.
Very different today - the square still has magic. Well worth the visit.

Monday is a great day to see heroes Square as everything else is closed. The square consists of four arcs of columns displaying all the good kings. The bad are not remembered. Off course you will see more on other days. After the square we walked to the Szechenyi baths, a few minutes walk. It is a huge complex of historical buildings, and if it isn't Monday you can have a thermal bath.It was wet, and Monday, when we went so we almost had the place to ourselves. You can walk or take the metro. We walked there so as to see the opera house and all the historic buildings on the way, but came back on the metro. Local transport is very cheap.

Heroes' Square offers a look into the proud history of Hungarian people and you can see all their most important historical figures there. Surrounding the square are museums and just behind it is an awesome castle and a beautiful spa. If you are with kids there is also a zoo nearby :) It is easy to get there - just jump on the yellow line and you will be there in 10 or so minutes.
