Budapest on Remembrance Day - October 23

Hello friends. I will be visiting Budapest for the first time this fall and will be there on 23 October. To help in planning, can anyone share what they know about closures and such? I assume, for example, that museums will be closed, but what about other sites, bars and restaurants? And is there a particular ceremony or venue you think I should make a point of visiting on that day? Thanks for your help!

Museums won't be closed, on the contrary, they are all open and can be visited free. I would really advise you to look into this and go early as they will probably be very busy.

The main even is the student march from the university by the river to the parliament. This is what started the revolution in 1956, the students marched up with torches in a peaceful protest. There is then a memorial by the Parliament, with probably the president and prime minister taking part.
