Statue of St. Stephen
(2)
This statue honors St. Stephen, the man who brought Christianity to Hungary and the king of Hungary from 1000 to 1038. The bronze statue depicts the Hungarian saint on his horse and rests atop a neo-Romanesque platform decorated with bas-reliefs by Alajos Strobl depicting scenes from the king-saint's life. One thing that stuck out was just how realistic the statue is - the details are incredible, especially the horse's saddle.

Szent Gellert Monument
(11)
As you make your way up the winding path through Jubilee Park on Gellert Hill, you'll arrive at the Szent Gellert Monument, a place which I like to call the "Balcony over the Danube." It's located 145 meters over the river and has unbeatable views of both the Danube and the Elisabeth Bridge. There is a monumental statue depicting the martyrdom of St. Gerard (Gellert in Hungarian) built in 1904 and a white colonnade.

Imre Nagy Monument
(2)
It's difficult not to run into reminders of Hungary's recent history as you go walking through the streets of Budapest. For example, I found this bronze statue of Imre Nagy (1896-1958), a Hungarian politician who was executed in 1958 along with several co-conspirators and thousands of normal citizens for their participation in the failed uprising of 1956. The statue is located in Vértanúk ter and you can get there by taking the Metro Line 2 to Kossuth Lajos tér.

Policeman Statue
(2)
Near St. Stephen's Basilica, there's a bronze statue of fat policeman that seems to be watching over the square. The realism is notable, especially in the facial expression. I tried to see if it had a specific name but I couldn't find one. Does anyone out there know?

Janos Arany Statue
(1)
In front of the Hungarian National Museum, you'll find a large statue in honor of the 19th century poet János Arany (1817-1882). The statue was built by Alajos Stróbl in 1893 and is famous for its realism and detail.

Anonymous Statue
Vajdahunyad Castle is, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful sights in Budapest and the castle grounds hold lots of interesting things to see beyond just the castle. In the gardens, for example, there's a statue of a hooded man holding a writing pad and letting a pen drop to the ground. This is Anonymous, a 12th-century Hungarian chronicler who wrote the first detailed books about Hungarian history. He apparently worked for King Bela, but as there were several of them nobody knows exactly who he was! According to locals, touching the pen (or pencil, whatever it is) brings good luck.
