This sprawling monument was erected for the 1000th anniversary celebration of the nation of Hungary. It celebrates a millennium of Hungarian heroes and history. Located at the end of the historic Andrassy Street, on the edge of a beautiful park, and flanked by two fabulous museums, this area is a great place to go to learn about Hungarian history and culture. I recommend taking the original subway line that runs under Andrassy Street out to the square. It, too, was built for the Millennium Celebration. It is the oldest subway system on continental Europe and it has been remarkably kept as it looked in the late 19th century.
