Translated Szabad Hazaert means free motherland. The statue was erected as a tribute to the Hungarian freedom fighters who fought in the war of independence against Austria. The metal statue is of a soldier with a laurel wreath from the winged Victory and the national flag. At the base of the statue, is a wreath with a ribbon engraved with the words “Freedom or Death”. The memorial is located in the Castle district of Budapest, on the Buda side of the Danube.

Budapest is the capital and the largest city of Hungary, and one of the largest cities in the European Union. It is the country's principal political, cultural, commercial, industrial, and transportation centre, sometimes described as the primate city of Hungary.
The Budapest Metropolitan Area is home to 3.3 million people. The city covers an area of 525 square kilometres within the city limits. Budapest became a single city occupying both banks of the river Danube with a unification on 17 November 1873 of west-bank Buda and Óbuda with east-bank Pest.
