Heroes' Square

  District XIV     more than a year ago
Choreographed Communist demonstrations on Heroes' Square once projected the power of the working class. Today, choreographed skateboard demonstrations display the agility of the local skate rats. The Millennial Monument here was erected to commemorate the 1000th anniversary of the Hungarians' settlement of the Carpathian Basin. Atop the 36m-tall column stands the Archangel Gabriel, who supposedly appeared to King St. Stephen in a dream and offered him the crown of Hungary. (Dreams do come true...) The seven chieftains at the foot of the column represent the seven Magyar tribes that settled in Hungary in the ninth century. The Hungarian War Memorial stands in front of the monument - not a tomb, although it's shaped like one.
