The crown of Andrassy avenue, surrounded by national museums and galleries this is Budapest's equivalent of Trafalgar Square

Hero SquareBuilt in 1896 to commemorate 1000 years of Hungarian history. In the center of what must be one of the finest places to roller blade in all of Europe, though a bit flat for some, is a 36 meter column, flanked by 7 fearsome characters from Hungary’s conception, and topped by the Archangel Gabriel in the act of offering divine rule to the first King St Stephen (not shown). Behind is an arcing colonnade with statues of those notorious enough to be included in a royals role of honour in chronological order. Fantastic at night.
