The Liberty Statue, or Freedom Statue (Hungarian: Szabadság Szobor) is something of a “many-faced symbol” of Hungarian culture. Originally, it was unveiled as a memorial tothe “Soviet liberation” of 1945. Today, it has became the symbol of the heroes of Hungarian independence and part of the panorama of the Hungarian. It would have been the symbol and logo of the Olympic Games 2024…if the city’s bid wouldn’t have been withdrawn. Its location upon Gellért Hill makes it a prominent feature of Budapest’s cityscape. You can view the statue for free at any time of day or night.
