Heroes’ Square (Hősök tere) is one of the most iconic landmarks of not just Budapest, but the whole of Hungary. The immense square features monumental statues of great Hungarian historical figures. Set at the end of the prestigious Andrássy Avenue, the statues and the great obelisk at its center, dominate the landscape even from far away.

As one of the largest squares of the city, Heroes’ Square is often populated by events and people. Political rallies, chariot and horse races (yes, you read that right), music festivals, or even on the most boring weekdays, skaters and skateboarders! Tourist buses also like to offload their eager visitors as there are several museums and attractions nearby.
Since the square is very spacious, it will never feel cramped with visitors. That being said, the best time to visit Heroes’ Square is around sunset, when the light hits the monumental statues just the right way! Mind you, during the summer, and especially around noon, temperatures on the hot tiles of the square can reach the upper 30 degrees Celsius!
