But once it's purpose is explained, this tribute to a brave leader gains a lot of significance and gravitas. It exudes peace and calm, and invites people to cross over the bridge and spend time with the hero on the bridge.

Walking by one evening, I glance over and see something in the park. Looks odd, and as I walk closer it is revealed. So poignant, so meaningful. A fitting tribute to a strong soul.

This small memorial for a well-known hero of the 1956 uprising is tucked away on side street near Parliament. As others have said, he ultimately paid with his life for resisting the Soviet might. I like this for its simplicity and it’s great to see...More

The fact Imre Nagy's statue is not on the main square near the parliament is not a coincidence. He is not placed on a pedestal like Kossuth, Andrassy or Rakosci, but on a small bridge in a small park. Still unlike the other Hungarian heroes,...More

I passed this statue on my way to the Parliament. I had to patiently wait for my turn to take its photos. On my way back, the locals were having some kind of public meetings at this area. No more chance to take selfies here!

This is a must see monument while out walking. It has history, but just seeing it is good enough, and can be busy with tourists

Imre Nagy attempted to test the limits of Nikita Khrushchev's destalinisation idea in October 1956 when tragically briefly for a few weeks in October 1956 the people of Budapest took on the might of the Soviet army (occupying them since 1945 and effectively guaranteeing one...More

........like so many others. We were walking away from the Parliament area and noticed the monument so gave it a look. My favorite part of the description is the mention of how he is looking toward Parliament and is basically "keeping an eye on them"....More

This was an accidental discovery for me. The man who led the revolution against the USSR and this idol commemorates his accomplishments. Situated on a small culvert, this has a lot of historical and political significance and people do not stop taking pictures with him....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
