Anonymus Szobor (Anonymous' Statue), Budapest

4.3
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. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Budapest holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Anonymus Szobor (Anonymous' Statue) and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • We accidentally came across this statue and its the most unusual statue we have ever seen, one of the best statues we have ever seen.  more »
  • The momument of Anonymus Szobor is situated in the park/garden of the Square of heros and a favorite spot to make photos siting on the bench next to the figure of Anonymus.  more »
  • Not really the highlight of Budapest but still worth watching and who does like ideal for a couple snaps photos. Much can be quite taken with when one dwells in Budapest and who missed Mr Abdullah, again not really missed.

  • 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.
