miss iggy and the millenary monument

Euro Iggy in front of the Millenary Monument

A few things Miss Iggy learned about this impressive pillar:

- it is located at the center of Hősök tere or Heroes' Square
- it is 36 meters high
- on top of the pillar is Angel Gabriel holding the Hungarian crown and a cross
- it is also known as the Millennium Monument
- at the base of the column is a group of seven mounted figures representing the Magyar chieftains who led the Hungarian people into the Carpathian basin
