Lonely Planet review

In the centre of Hősök tere there is a 36m-high pillar backed by colonnades to the right and left. Topping the pillar is the Angel Gabriel, who is holding the Hungarian crown and a cross. At the base are Árpád and the six other Magyar chieftains who occupied the Carpathian Basin in the late 9th century. The 14 statues in the colonnades are of rulers and statesmen: from King Stephen on the left to Lajos Kossuth on the right. The four allegorical figures atop are (from left to right) : Work and Prosperity; War; Peace; Knowledge and Glory.
