Use Metro 1 to reach this wonderful square. the stop is "Hosok Tere". you will be amazed. Behind the square you will find an awesome medieval castle on the right and the Szecheny thermal baths on the left. Reaaaaally reccomend to visit both.
Easy to get to one bus stop from just outside the railway station bus 20E maybe 5 minutes. You will take plenty of pictures of all the statues and the nearby park and gallery. This is a stop on the hop on hop off but we thought it was better to walk around to take it all in. If you use the Giraffe hop on hop off and leave the bus there could be a long wait to pick up the next bus (50 minutes for some) so probably best to stay on and consider where you would like to revisit. Other hop on hop off busses seemed to be more frequent. If you are 65 or older bus, metro, trams etc. are free and frequent and we downloaded google maps to our phone which provided directions and even when the next bus would arrive.
Hungarians are incredibly proud of their heritage. As an American, I found myself at a bit of a loss and if it weren't for my Hungarian friend, the significance of most of the monuments would've been lost on me. Reading up on the highlights of Hungarian history before visiting this square would be very helpful. Theirs is a fascinating story!
Allow yourself plenty of time to see all what Heroes Square has to offer. Once at the main monuments in the square dont forget to explore the park located behind it. This is where you will find the Szechhenyi Thermal Baths.
Heroes corner was a lovely place to visit. It was very crowded with lots of coaches so best visiting it earlier in the morning or later in the evening if possible. The park beside heroes corner is worth a visit too. It has an outdoor bar area where you can get some well earned refreshments if the weather was warm like it was when I visited.
Heroes square was great and the castle next door is lovely but the tower at the castle is not worth paying extra for. The view from the top is not impressive and even though it’s only a pound or two it isn’t worth the time!!
