    Hösök tere lies at the end of the 2.5 km (1.4 m.) long Andrássy út, the avenue which starts at Bajcsy- Zsilinszky út. In the centre of the square stands the Millenary Monument, to the left is the Museum of Fine Arts and to the right the imposing building of the Art Gallery. In the centre we see the Memorial to Hungarian Heroes, a 47-ton monolith.

    Located at the end of Andrassy boulevard (which is the nicest street in Pest littered with museums and mansions), the square has 2 museums and in the center stands a 120-foot bronze Monument celebrating the 1000th anniversary of the Magyar Conquest(....a little history for you!!!)

    Merita sa faci o baie la Szechenyi Furdo chiar si iarna. Apa este termala. Dar sa ai grija sa nu te apleci dupa sapun.
