The square is one of the most visited sights of the Hungarian capital, situated in front of the City Park, at the end of the Andrássy Avenue, one of the most important streets of Budapest, a World Heritage site.
The millenium monument was built in 1896 to commemorate the 1000th anniversary of the arrival of Magyars (Hungarians) in the Carpathian Basin. The monument consists of two semi-circles on the top of which the symbols of War and Peace, Work and Wellfare, Knowledge and Glory can be seen. The niches are decorated by the statues of kings, governors and famous characters of the Hungarian history.
At the two ends are the buildings of the Museum of Fine Arts and the Art Gallery with high standard temporary exhibitions, such as Van Gogh, Rembrandt and the collections of Spanish and French paintings.
