Budapest Local Customs: 232 reviews and 280 photos
The 15th March is a National Holiday in Hungary to commemorate the revolution of 1848.
At this time major festivities are being held around the city, one of the biggest ones at the Petofi statue (he was a great Hungarian poet/writer and also a leader of the revolution).
This temporary "statue" near the original one is a replica of the Petofi statue, installed only for the events of the day. The original (just like the replica on that day...) is on Petofi ter, on the Danube corso, near the Elisabeth Bridge (Pest side).
