Statue of Imre Nagy, Budapest

#89 of 1,064 in Things to do in Budapest
Pay homage to the former two-time Hungarian Prime Minister and leading figure of the Hungarian Revolution, Imre Nagy, at Statue of Imre Nagy. Located close to Parliament, a life-size Nagy looks contemplatively towards the government building where he gave anti-Soviet speeches in hopes of an independent Hungary. The statue was erected in 1996 and commemorates the failed Hungarian Revolution of October 23, 1956, in which Nagy played a key role. He was later captured by the Soviets, and infamously tried, sentenced, and executed in secret. Read up on the history behind the statue before going, as no information is displayed on site.

  • He was interested in seeing and taking pictures of Nagy monument, but even having quite good directions he could not locate it. By larde I searched the Internet, it turns out it was almost secretly (and at night) removed in December last year. In its place (?) a horrible granite structure.

  • To see while walking along the Danube: a truly distinctive monument, which deserves to be seen.

  • Interesting statue on a slippery rickety wooden bridge. I guess it belongs to some local popular revolutionist. A pretty good and scenic spot to take pictures with the parliament visible behind.
  • A beautiful memorial statue to a brave and principalled man. You may disagree with his politics but he stood for what he saw as right and gave his life for that belief.
