Millennium Monument

Millennium Monument

Work on this monument was begun in 1896, the one-thousand-year anniversary of the Hungarian Conquest; however it was not finished until 1926. The monument consists of a two-part semi-circular colonnade, with statues of the historically most significant Hungarian kings and leaders standing between the columns.

A 36m high column rises from the centre of the semi-circle, supporting a statue of the Archangel Gabriel; at its base stand the equestrian statues of Arpád and the other six leaders of the Hungarian Conquest.
