Hősök tere

Seven Chieftains Of  The Magyars
Hősök tere, Heroes' Square in English, is located at the outbound end of Andrássy Avenue next to City Park (Városliget) in Budapest, Hungary. The square is flanked by the Museum of Fine Arts and the Palace of Art (Műcsarnok). 



The square must be one of the top 10 tourist's destinations and hence I saw young drunk Americans and families from all variety of nations there. 

Right Colonnade

There you can find iconic statue complex featuring the Seven Chieftains of the Magyars and other important national leaders, as well as the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The sculptures made by sculptor Zala György have eye-witnessed numerous political events such as the reburial of Nagy Imre in 1989.




A statue of Archangel Gabriel stands up on the top of column holding the Hungarian holy crown (you can see it in the Hungarian Parliament Building) in his right hand and a two barred apostolic cross (double cross) in his left hand.

If you want to see the holy crown of Hungary, go visit the Parliament!
