This imposing square was built for the 1896 millennium celebrations. It is dominated by the Archangel Gabriel who is surrounded by seven statues representing the chiefs of the seven Magyar tribes who settled in this area (supposedly in AD 896). The large open space is dedicated to the Hungarian war memorial and attracts tourists, skateboarders and inline skaters by the dozens. Check out the recently restored art museums on either side of the square.
i realy thought that the city had so much to offer, the local transport was very good. the buildings have so much history to them, the people where friendly.if you try and learn a few words of hungarian before you go it will help because not everyone can understand english. and the food is great, anyone that goes should try the local cusine, my 2 top places were hero sqaure and a old turkish bath not far from the sqaure, over all fantastic!!!
