Heroes' Square reviews
First time in Budapest was very exciting . Fantastic architecture in the city. Heroes square is huge and the iconic statues tells a lot of the country ‘s history . It’s a photo op must . more »
Although I believe there are better attractions than the Heroes' Square, I still found the statues incredibly beautiful. I recommend visiting little past the golden hour for magical pictures with sun.... more »
Such a beautiful spot. There isn’t a whole lot to do and see but the scenery is really amazing for the area. If you have time I would definitely recommend stopping down here for a little bit lots of stuff to do around the area as well.
It is great to see all the Kings/Gentlemen in power that had a history in making Budapest what it is today. Very interesting and impressive. Not seen anything like that in all my travels..
