What a sunny day, spring is in the air, come and walk outside, discover Budapest with me! There are many iconic sights in the city, Heroes Square definitely belongs to those. This is the place, where during WWII the Hungarian soldiers waved goodbye to their families and they were welcomed back here as well. The square was an important historical scene in the past.
It's situated at the end of the Adrássy Avenue and its embraces a beautiful building complex in the City Park. Did you know that in the Middle Ages the area used to be a popular hunting field for the kings and a huge part of it was covered by swamp. The park project was developed only in the 18th century, when finally it belonged to the largest public parks in Europe.
In 1896 the country celebrated the 1000th anniversary, that the first Hungarian tribe settled down in the Carpthian Basin. In the frame of the Millennium Exhibition amazing pieces of art works were open for public in the City Park. The facilities that were built at that time are still important sights today: the Millennium Monument in the middle, the colonnades and the two museums on both sides.
