Heroes' Square

Heroes' Square was built in 1896 to celebrate the millennium of the Hungarian conquest of the Carparthian Basin. The 36-meter high column in the center supports the winged figure of the Archangel Gabriel. The four sculptures on the top of the two-part colonnade represent Work and Prosperity, War, Peace, and Knowledge and Glory.

Heroes' Square

According to legend, Gabriel appeared in the dreams of Saint Stephen, the first Hungarian king, and gave him the holy crown.
