Monument to Imre Nagy/Remembrance Day (Oct. 23), Budapest

(4/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
Pay homage to the former two-time Hungarian Prime Minister and leading figure of the Hungarian Revolution, Imre Nagy, at Monument to Imre Nagy/Remembrance Day (Oct. 23). Located close to Parliament, a life-size Nagy looks contemplatively towards the government building where he gave anti-Soviet speeches in hopes of an independent Hungary. The statue was erected in 1996 and commemorates the failed Hungarian Revolution of October 23, 1956, in which Nagy played a key role. He was later captured by the Soviets, and infamously tried, sentenced, and executed in secret. Read up on the history behind the statue before going, as no information is displayed on site.

  • 二十世纪七十年代以后出生的中国人可能很少有人听说过纳吉这个名字。即使是再年长的,估计知道他的人也不多。 十几年前我在国外参加一个企业内部培训项目时,遇到来自各国的同事。那时候苏联早已解体,东欧巨变也早已结束。闲聊时一位捷克同事提到“after the revolution,……”我第一时间还没有反应过来她提到的“革命”指的是什么。然后我才明白她说的是东欧国家从苏联的影响下脱离出来,以及这些国家内部...  more »
  • A nice monument with a hero complex history, location in vandalizing opposite Parliament. I recommend travelers at least a little reading about those places and monuments that you visit, and even more so against the background of which decided to take a picture, it is not always appropriate. During the great patriotic war Hungary fought on the side of the fascists and the Hungarians still hates the entire Socialist (revolution of 1956).

  • Next to the Parliament, in a small space, you can encounter on the steel bridge from which the page was the Parliament looks father Hungarian uprising-Imre Nagy. The bridge you can go and take a photo with Nagy'm. This is also a good place to briefly relax and sit on the bench.
