  • A good place to walk by(or even drive past) in the evening. It has historical figures such as 7 tribes leaders which formed the Hungarian identity, an angel who whispered in the kings ear to give the throne to the people and 14 major kings of a total of 55 that Hungarians had. Also, it has 4 figures symbolizing war, peace, growth and prosperity.
  • Heroes' Square has an iconic statue complex including the Seven Chieftains of the Magyars and other important national leaders. There is the Museum of Fine Arts and Palace of Art on the left and right sides of the square. You can also find nearby for example the City Park to hang out and the wonderful Vajdahunyad Castle with the lake next to that. This is the best place to shoot some beautiful memorable pictures. Don't miss to visit this place if you are in Budapest.
  • You can follow the main points in the Hungarian history walking on this square. Notice the" fleur de lys" , Flower of lily, named "giglio" on the crest of one of the kings. Find out which. This flower is on a flag of the city, from where the king ordered the famous Hungarian gold coin. And the coin was named from the name of the city. Florint. Later because of the pronunciation, it become "Forint". This is how we name the current currency of Hungary HUF.
  • Very grand square which is located very close to the famous bath house. If coming from the city centre it might be worth getting the train as it was a very long walk!
  • this is a nice square that tells a lot about the Hungarian History. Best to go there with a guide who can tell you about the kings and leaders of the old Hungaria. Otherwise it is just a nice square with statues1
