Time Wheel - Idokerek, Budapest: 3 reviews and 6 photos
A somewhat controversial monument, due to it being considered ugly and expensive, the Time Wheel has been left in an unloved spot, hidden behind the Palace of Art Museum off Heroes Square. The monument was built to celebrate Hungary's accession to the EU, and is made from 60 tons of granite, steel and glass.
It's main function is to countdown the year, with the glass "sand" pouring from one half into the other so that it empties at exactly midnight on New Year's Eve. At that point the whole 60 tons is turned over and the timer starts all over again.
Directions: Take the M1 go Hossok Tere (Heroes Square) and take a left past the Palace of Art. It's a little behind the Hall of Art on your left.
