National Gallop is a spectacular Hungarian horse show and horse race around the exquisite statues of the spacious Heroes’ Square in Budapest. Plus you can eat traditional Hungarian foods at the shady tents and terraces along the square. National Gallop is both a sports festival and a culinary event.
The stillness of the picture postcard Heroes’ Square with Gabriel archangel standing on top of the white column of the Millennial Monument surrounded by one of the finest horse men statues in the world is beautifully contrasted by the dynamic horse race featuring hundreds of horses, horsemen in this one of a kind equestrian show.
