You find this memorial if you leave Szigetvár towards Mozsgó right next to the road so you won't miss it, it's visible from a far distance on your left hand side. It was erected to commemorate the Szigetvár battle against Sultan Süleyman when the heroic Hungarians fought till their last drop of blood. You see two statues. One is The magnificent Sultan Süleyman's head and his tughra. The other statue is for Miklós Zrínyi who tried to keep the Szigetvár castle till the end. You find detailed descriptions about the history of this battle.
Very nicely renovated some years ago, lots of information of the Ottiman centuries in Hungary. The land belongs to Turkey!
