Freedom Square

Interesting
Built on the site of a former Austrian barracks, this vast square is flanked by two buildings with majestic façades, attributed to Ignác Alpár: the State Television, once the Stock Exchange and the Hungarian National Bank. To the north, an obelisk is the only remaining monument to Soviet Russia, not far from... the American Embassy. To the south is the pompous and controversial 2014 Memorial to the Victims of German Invasion.
