Anonymus Szobor (Anonymous' Statue), Budapest

4.5
Anonymus Szobor (Anonymous' Statue) pays tribute to the nameless storyteller and the first medieval Hungarian chronicler. Contemporary sculptor Miklós Ligeti portrayed this important historical figure as one who is hiding his face under a hood. Look for the inscription in Latin at the base of the monument, which translates to "the notary of the most glorious King Béla." Anonymus' chronicles provide an insight into medieval Hungary and the origin of the Hungarians. Locals believe that touching the figure's pen makes you a better writer.

  • The statue is located in a park near the square. A devoted chronicler of the era of the reign of King Bela III, who lived in the 12 century, highlighting the history of resettlement of Hungarians. That's when you look at it and thought comes to mind that in Russia there are hackers:) turns and they too have in Hungary and the monument itself even them.

  • There are a bunch of versions, who is devoted to this statue, but it is not important. Feel the sense of mystery with her

  • At the end of the Heroes square, curious to see and if you want to take a picture and rub his pencil, say that it brings good luck for future writers.

  • Really interesting sculpture - definitely worth seeing.
  • The statue is located within the castle of Vajdahunyad vár, in City Park, in the City Park of Budapest within walking distance to heroes ' square. The statue is very impressive and very creepy. In a landscape that makes it all the more fascinating: leafless trees, the ancient castle and nature. Seems to live within a 19th-century Novel.

  • Monument to an anonymous chronicler (1903), who lived in the 12th century and author of the book "Deeds of the Hungarians". If you rub his pen, then maybe come true hidden desire.
