When the opportunity arises, I like to walk around cities I am visiting without any set agenda or objective in mind. When doing this, there are often instances of serendipity. This was the case when walking around the back of the Parliament Buildings and encountering...More

It's a statue in a park. Europe has a lot of these. I think this one relates to an uprising that was not successful. It's ok. Not worth going out of the way for.

You must read about mire Nagy. Buried face down in disrespect. This monument helps restore his history.

Imre Nagy was PM during the 1956 Revolution, and was eventually tried and executed in a show trial when the Revolution ultimately failed. As a result, he became a hero to the Hungarian people. This statue facing the Parliament is a fitting tribute to his...More

Very interesting statue especially as it represents a very significant part of 20th century history. Also situated in a very significant area with parliament nearby and the Ronald Reagan statue and the controversial eagle statue.Much to think about

We noticed this intriguing statue whilst strolling through the parliament quarter and looked for a plaque without success. Later, we googled it and were stunned to learn that this is a monument to a former prime minister who was executed. A tragic story that deserves...More

The memorial is quite a lovely sculpture, and while it appears interactive, be careful. While it's possible to climb the bridge to stand next to the figure, the metal deck is very slippery and only partly secured, so the plates will randomly rock from side-to-side...More

Who would want to have a mediocre statue commemorating them and become a climbing frame for foreign tourists? Poor Imre Nagy, a true communist, a pechvogel, and a victim in more than one way, has to endure this in the heart of Budapest.

This memorial of Nagy, a key leader in the failed 1956 Hungarian Revolution, is small yet nice. Made from metal, it is a statue of him on a small bridge over a pool. He is facing in the direction of Parliament and it makes for...More

Walking back towards our hotel from the Parliament building we noticed an unusual monument in a park area on a bridge it is certainly interesting and easy to access from by Parliament.

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
