  • It's really beautiful! We went there with the Hop on Hop off bus, and we had a stop at the square. Took some photos and walked around. 
  • A truly majestic square! Close to a beautiful park and open to one of the city's most beautiful streets!

  • Such a beautiful place to visit. The sculptures are indeed a magnificent work of art. Well worth a visit. 
  • Went to see Heroes' Square and ended up spending a lot of time there! A small festival was going on in the park beside Heroes' Square, so we ended up spending a lot of time around the area. It was a nice day and had amazing cuisine choices. Also, there was a race going on at the time. So fun to see everyone enjoying the area.
  • Area of Budapest aptly named. Fab views, the statues look imposing, huge and daring. Popular with tourists and locals alike. Well connected via the underground metro Ⓜ. Must visit. Highly recommended.
  • Lots of crazy folks down there. Drunk English men, gayLords. Maybe I was lucky. The site is nice. Flags all over. They're pretty nationalists over there. It's the monument of the 7 chieftains of the Hungarians and the unknown soldier.
  • One of the most beautiful places in Budapest and full of history about the Hungarian tribes. Surrounded by green areas with restaurants and close to a very popular public bath for thermal water is called Széchényi fürdő.
  • Huge open space with lots of historic statues I wish there was more information on what was actually here but it looks lovely at night and was well lit felt very safe also
