Monument to Imre Nagy/Remembrance Day (Oct. 23), Budapest
(4.1/5 based on 340+ 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.

  • I've a soft spot for Imre Nagy and was delighted to find his statue unexpectedly here, along with his commemorative tombstone in the Parisian Père Lachaise Cemetery. 
  • This bridge sums up the hope of democracy in Hungary until the intervention of Russian Communists don't kill democracy and don't shoot the man on the bridge. a reminder of the useful history...
