  • Located within Kossuth Lajos Square, stands the equestrian statue of Francis II Rakocz, the national hero, who lead the uprising against the Hapsburgs in the early 1700’s.  more »
  • This is one of many statues located around the parliament building. Pretty large and nice to look at. Not sure what the story is behind this one either.  more »

  • Many tourists pass by men in a horse, and yes, these monuments look great, but there are so many of them, that they lose their meaning. We need to read. This man was Francis II Rákóczi. Son of one of the bravest woman in Hungarian history: Elena Zrínyi. When his Mother was leading the defensive of their castle, he was also leading and motivating the men at the age of 12. No wonder he grew up to be a great leader. His motto was “with God for my home and for freedom”. He led a revolution against Habsburg, not the most important but one of the most important. As all of the revolutions against Habsburg, it failed, but this revolution served to maintain Transilvania and Hungary independent instead of annexing it to Austria. From that point of view, it was a victory.
  • Beautiful building with a prominent horse statue in the main square. This building is just before the main parliament building when approached from within the city. Great place for photos.
