The War 1.
Heroe's Square, Budapest, Hungary

Heroes' Square is one of my favourite sights in Budapest as I am living about ten minutes walk from here.
...The enourmous semi-circle with columsn is the Millenary Monument but on the same Square you can find some fine museums too. The the Millenary Monument was erected in 1896, to conmemore the thousandth anniversary of the Conquest of the country by the Hungarians. It was designed by the architect Albert Schickedanz and the sculptor György Zala. In the centre of the munument itself stands a 36-metre high column with a winged victory on top, flanked by the statues of the Magyar chief Árpád and of the chiefs of the other six tribes on the pedestal. Behind these stand as series of columns forming a semi-circle. On them stand the statues of the most important Hungarian kings, princes and commanders.
The relieves on the base of the columns commemorate historic events.

On top of the semicircle there are four symbolic statues: Work and Wealth on the left, two chariots, depicting War and Peace, in the centre, and Honour and Glory on the right.
