Jozsef Timar as Willy Loman - Budapest

Jozsef Timar as Willy Loman

Actor giants in the park

In the park of the new National Theatre there are some statues of Hungarian actor giants of the past.

There is a statue about Hilda Gobbi, Kalman Latabar, Manyi Kiss, Eva Ruttkai and others.

The one on my picture is Jozsef Timar. The statue is showing him playing in Arthur Millers "Death of a Salesman", one of his most remarkable roles on stage.

Iron stump - an old message wall :) - Budapest

Iron stump - an old message wall :)

Iron stump - old message wall :)

The original iron stump was a way for apprentices to leave behind a mark about the time they spent around or to express their feelings in a escret way. They just hammered a nail into it to leave their "message".

This iron stump is a copy of the original one, which was made in the 19th century and was there through more then 100 years.

You can find it on the corner of Iskola street and Vam street in the 1st district, under the Castle hill, close to Batthyany square.

One of the old statues in need of balance :) - Budapest

One of the old statues in need of balance :)

The Garden of the Ferenc Puskas Stadium

The Ferenc Puskas Stadium is actually not only a stadium but a nice big area with other buildings and sport fields.

It's called the "Stadionkert" (Stadium Garden). Worth to visit for the retro (realistic art from the era of the socialism...:) statues around the running court.

The orthodox cross in the Taban park - Budapest

The orthodox cross in the Taban park

Greek orthodox cross in Taban

This cross was originally erected by the serbian greek orthodox congregation of the Taban area (the area behind the Castle Hill) in 1865.

The Taban's houses were demolished in 1930, until then the sorrounding of the Castle was looking quite rural with small houses and narrow streets.

The cross was re-established in the Taban park, between the Castle Hill and the Gellert Hill.

Maria Immaculata statue - Budapest

Maria Immaculata statue

Maria Immaculata statue

The Maria Immaculata statue was made by Antal Horger and was erected, according to a pledge after the black death epidemic of 1724, by the residents of Buda.

Originally it was on the square which is now Batthyany ter and was moved to Irma ter in 1834, which became Maria ter after the statue.

Maria ter is in the 1st district, you can easily find it by walking up on Batthyany utca from Batthyany ter (M2 underground station).

Przemysl monument - Budapest

Przemysl monument

Przemysl monument

Something that does not sound very Hungarian...and why? Because it isn't!

Przemysl is located in southern Poland nowdays, but before the 1st world war it was part of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy.

In a battle during WW1, numerous hungarian soldiers lost their lives there, this monument is conmemorating theri sacrifice.

The Lion was made by one of the old soldiers and was erected in 1932 at the Buda bridgehead of the Margit Bridge.

Oblique view on the terrace :) - Budapest

Oblique view on the terrace :)

Popular "hang out place" of young people

Above the entrance of the Tunnel in front of the Chainbridge, there is a nice terrace where young people like to hang out during the nice summer evenings.

They climb out to the outer part of the terrace too, but if you do so, please be very careful! There have been some accidents over there in the past!

Bring there some wine or abier with some snacks and enjoy the view of the bridge and the traffic underneath you :)
