One of the most beautiful and also one of the most poignant statues in Budapest is Monument To Imre Nagy,Remembrance Day ( Oct 23 ) .
Located in the shadow of the Hungarian Parliament Building ,this wonderful statue is in honour of Imre Nagy who was the hero of the 1956 anti Soviet uprising ,for his role in this uprising he was hanged after this revolt was ruthlessly crushed .
This statue looks amazing ,shows this martyr standing on a pretty bridge looking over to Hungarian Parliament Building ,it's a statue to most definitely check out if you're in the area and easy to locate on Vertanuk Ter .

The statue is at the end of the Margaret bridge over the Danube on the Pest side of the city.
It is of a reformist Prime Minster who wanted to end the hardline era of communist rule. In 1956 the revolt was crushed by soviet force tanks and then Imre Nagy was hung for his role in the revolt.
It is a very understated statue and easily missed. I walk past this and didn't realize what it was until I looked it up when returning home to Australia.

This monument sits in a little park at the Pest end of Margaret Bridge. It commemorates the Hungarian Prime Minister who was leading the government during the 1956 Rebellion. He was tried for treason, executed, and buried in an unmarked grave.

The monument to Imre Nagy, a hero of the 1956 anti-Soviet uprising, is by local sculptor Tamás Varga. It depicts the former Hungarian Prime Minister on the side of a small arched bridge pensively looking towards Hungary’s national parliament. Nagy was the pro-reform Prime Minister in 1956, supporting those seeking to end hard-line communist rule. The 1956 revolt was crushed by Soviet tanks, pro-Moscow hardliners were reinstalled in power, and Imre Nagy was hanged in 1958 for his role in the uprising. The memorial was moved from Vertanuk Ter. (across from Kossuth Ter.) to Jaszai Mari Square near the Margaret Bridge in the summer of 2019. The Nagy monument was replaced by a memorial to the victims of the Red Terror, an attempted coup against the (short-lived) Hungarian Soviet Republic in 1919. The Republic ended the first week of August 1919 during the Hungarian–Romanian War, when Romanian forces occupied Budapest. The Red Terror memorial was in Vertanuk Ter. from 1934 to 1944. Both monuments are accessible at all times with no entry fee.

After learning who Imre Nagy was while helping my daughter revise for her history exam. We took time to find his statue which is next to the Margaret Bridge. He stands on a his little bridge looking up towards the parliament building.

I was very surprised when I saw that the statue, which I had seen two years ago, no longer exists. I was angry because I live in a country that knows very well how bad the communist regime brought, and this Imre Nagy was convicted and killed for leading the Hungarian uprising in 1956 against the USSR. The press writes that it will be located elsewhere in Budapest, but it is a shame for the Hungarian authorities that they have moved this statue from a place of special significance - close to the Parliament. Shame, once again!

A touching monument in a small park that attracts attention, questions and thoughts. Imre Nagy in a non-monumental pose stands on a small bridge as a plain little man, and not as a prominent person of his time.
