  • In 1886, after demolishing the barracks Noigke mpaoynte, in place of the modeled the freedom square. The barracks that had been built for the Austrian troops, dominated the southern part of Lipotbaros (city of Leopold). Here was executed at 06 October 1849, the first independent Prime Minister of Hungary, count Mpatiani Imazighen. By 1926 one eternal flame burns in Aoylich Street in honor of all those who were executed during the uprising. 2 beautiful buildings has the square on 2 sides opposite each other. The former stock exchange and today seat of the Hungarian television and the National Bank of Hungary. And 2 buildings of igknats Alpar, in 1905. Also there are square Obelisk (Karoli Antal) in honor of the soldiers of the Red Army who were killed during the siege of Budapest in 1944-5, a statue of Ronald Reagan, u.s. General's statue, Harry Chil Mpantcholtz and other ... It is very near the Parliament Square, so it is worth to go.
