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

#28 of 111 in Sightseeing in Budapest
Monument Tourist Spot
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.
