Monument of National Cohesion with Trianon Flame

Monument of National Cohesion with Trianon Flame

Housing the eternal flame of Trianon, the Monument of National Cohesion was scheduled to be dedicated on June 4th this year, but due to the coronavirus, the ceremony was postponed until August 20th. 

Located on Kossuth tér, at the end of Alkotmány utca, and opposite the entrance to the Parliament building, it is sunk into the ground so as not to distract from the view.  The original designer of the Parliament building, Steindl Imre (see Magyar News Online, July-August issue), specified that nothing may be placed on the square that would block its view or compete with it.
