The Soviet Heroic Memorial is the biggest obelisk/statue in Liberty Square, but recently it is balanced back with the Ronald Reagen and George W. H. Bush statues on the other side!
The statute is really controversial because the liberators became occupiers for many decades...

This attractive, white stone Pillar strategically placed in liberty Square so it rises between 2 Nouveau Arts buildings in the background is a fitting memorial to the army that liberated Budapest from the Nazis while suffering the highest casualties in world war 2. The square was also attractively decorated at night for the holidays.

We walked this area, and there is this monument, but also a couple other you may miss that are tired to this monument as a counter piece. Also close by is little shops.

Sad to see such monument in the capital of Hungry, a member of EU. A monument for the solders of the regime which brought 50 years of fear and terror for the country.

Just a few meters away there is a small photo exhibition about the victims of soviets regime. There is flowers with russian flag ny the monument to solders, but no flowers and regret by the photos of murdered people.

I value monuments in many ways. They were put there for a reason and this one was for the help that the Soviets gave in getting the Nazi's out of Hungary. Kudos to whomever got this erected.

The elegant Soviet Heroic Memorial in Budapest stands as a poignant tribute to the valor of WWII Soviet soldiers, embodying their historic sacrifice with grace and dignity. Nice piece of history.

This statue represents the memorial to those Russians who helped liberate the country during WWII from the Nazi's but also mixed emotions from later oppression during the cold war era. Two American presidential statues are nearby as well.

This monument honors the Soviet soldiers who fought to liberate Hungary from the Nazis near the end of WWII. Later, the Soviets were seen as oppressors, but their service to Hungary is still recognized.

History is complicated in Eastern Europe.

At the northern end of Liberty Square, stands an impressive Obelisk in memory of the Red Army soldiers who fell on guard during the Budapest siege in 1944 - 1945. The obelisk has very impressive Soviet characteristics and gives respect to the fallen soldiers.
