Trip To Europe: Budapest Pictures

Kossuth Heros Square 3

Heroes’ Square: Statues and memorials tell the history of the Hungarian nation. At the base of the central column are the Seven Chieftains that lead the Magyar people to what is now Hungary. On top column the Archangel Gabriel holds the Hungarian Crown. In front of the central column is a monument to all heroes who fought for the Hungarian nation. Two colonnades form a semi-circle in the background. Statues depicting fourteen national heroes occupy the spaces between columns. Four statues above the colonnades represent (from left to right): Labor & Wealth, War, Peace, and Knowledge & Glory. For a list of the heroes depicted in the colonnades please click the link.

The Hungarian Parliament Building is, quite possibly, the most beautiful structure I have ever seen. Our tour (Globus: Imperial Escape) took a night cruise on the Danube, we had a fantastic evening. Budapest at night is remarkable. Hope you enjoy the pictures.
