Near Parliament and the Danube so you shouldn't miss it if you're in the area. It's worth a stop to see the contrast between the statesmen on one side and the struggling citizens on the other.

With so many statues and monuments in Budapest, one might get satiated after awhile. But this one is quite imposing looking and is big enough and mounted high enough that even when there is a crowd at the base, you can still see the monument...More

I do not want to bore anyone stiff, but I feel that a short history of this memorial is necessary. The current statue group was made by János Horvay and was set up in 1927. After the change of regime, like so many other things,...More

Situation adjacent to the Parliament building and next to the Danube these couple of Statues dedicated to Lajos Kossuth stand proudly. They are very detailed and interesting. Any visit to the Parliament area could easily fit in a visit around these statues.

The STATUES OF LAGOS KOSSUTH is an amazing area in the beautiful square . Lagos Kossuth was a Hungarian leader who was prominent in the uprising against the Habsburgs in 1848--1849 . The statue/statues are wonderful and the square is surrounded by exquisite architecture. While...More

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
