Hungarian Republic Day History
Republic Day commemorates the Hungarian Revolution of 1956. Following Joseph Stalin's death in 1953, Soviet rule in Eastern Europe began to weaken and Hungarians had a new leader name Nagy Imre, who started a new more liberal form of governing. The Russians removed Nagy from his post and appointed a new prime minister. However, Hungarians began to demand radical real changes. On 23 October 1956, hundreds of thousands of students and citizens took to the streets of Budapest to demand change.
Republic Day is celebrated annually on 23 October, the day that marks the beginning of the historical revolution for political change in Hungary.
