The spectacular Heroes Square is located just right outside the city park of Budapest. The central monument featuring Gabriel the Guardian Angel is also known as the Millennium Monument, which was completed in 1900 to commemorate the 1000th year of Hungarian State founded by Stephen I.
The right colonnade represents peace, knowledge and glory;
whereas the left colonnade represents labor, wealth and war.
Heroes Square is also used for political events such as receiving prominent foreign guests – which was the case on the day of my visit. Security was high, soldiers were rehearsing the ceremony until the guest arrived. The guest is probably an ambassador from Malaysia or Indonesia looking at the costumes they are wearing. Quite a coincidence that we visited the square on the same day !
I wish I had enough time to visit the two beautiful buildings flanking the sqaure, the Palace of Arts,
Heroes Square is within 10 minutes walk to Szechenyi Thermal Baths, so you could plan to visit both places enroute.
