Heroes' Square, which is one of the largest squares in the city, is frequently the location of a variety of activities and events. Even on the dullest weekdays, you can find something interesting to watch, whether it be political rallies, chariot and horse races (yep, you read that correctly), music festivals, or skaters and skateboarders! Because there are a number of museums and attractions in the area, tourist buses frequently stop here to unload their excited passengers. 

Because there is so much space, the square will never appear or feel crowded even when it is full with people. Having said that, the greatest time to go to Heroes' Square is around the time when the sun is setting, as this is when the light falls on the massive monuments in the most flattering way. Keep in mind that the temperatures on the hot tiles of the square can reach the upper 30s Celsius during the summer, particularly around noon.
