Statue of Imre Nagy, Budapest

#85 of 1,069 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.

  • We went expressly to the square to see the statue and make the last pictures of our trip, and... Surprise! There was no square, there was no statue, there was nothing.... They're in construction. I know that this in the big cities happens, but the tourists who get excited with these lovely corners, we are disappointed. Perhaps the next...

  • It was located about 500m from the place with shoes on the promenade of the Danube river. It was the composition that the bridge was seven bridges across on the river, and the gentleman was standing on a small bridge.

  • 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.
  • Please Google do not let the Hungarian government remove this from Google maps. Taking down this statue in the middle of the night without public discussion is tyranny.
