Hosok Tere, which means Heroes' Square in Hungary is a major square in Budapest, Hungary. The square has a rich history and is even home to a World Heritage site. It can be reached by taking the Millennium Underground of the Budapest Metro.



The square is perhaps best known for Millennium Monument, which is 35 meters tall and was built in 1897 to celebrate 1,000 years of rule in Europe. One of the most notable things about the monument are the seven mounted figures at the base of it.
