Budapest - Szabadság szobor

Újbuda | Gellérthegy Természetvédelmi terület

The Liberty Statue is a monument on the Gellért Hill which commemorates those who sacrificed their lives for the independence, freedom, and prosperity of Hungary.

It was first erected in 1947 by Zsigmond Kisfaludi Stróbl in remembrance of what was then referred to as the Soviet liberation of Hungary during World War II, which ended the occupation by Nazi Germany.
