Anonymus Szobor (Anonymous' Statue), Budapest
(4.2/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Anonymus Szobor (Anonymous' Statue) a centerpiece of your Budapest vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Budapest vacation trip planner.
