Anonymus Szobor (Anonymous' Statue), Budapest

(4.2/5 based on 700+ 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.

  • from the statue there is a beautiful view of the castle and the park , touch the pen of the writer , you will get fortune  more »
  • During the visit to Varosliget City Park, visit the Vajdahunyad Castle. While we admire the exterior, rest affected by the presence of this statue that captures the attention of passers-by. The strength of this work is in the charge of mystery that is perceived by the face covered, contemplative time chino and, with an open code on the left and a pen on the right hand. All that is known of him is that he was a notary and scribe of King Bela. Among the various legends and superstitions around this statue, the most popular is the one that wants to touch the pen can bring good fortune to those who contested by the anonymous aims to become a writer.
