“A really fun feature in City Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

We were in the area having just gone to Heroes Square, and looked in our guidebook which noted about the statue "the anonymous writer; his pen has become shiny from those touching it. It is said that touching the pen will give writers good luck and protect from writer's block". As someone currently nearing the end of a PhD, I figured visiting might come in handy. The statue is in a great location within castle grounds, and there weren't many people around, allowing us to take a few photos touching the pen. It was just a shame I couldn't ply it out of his hands! There's also some nice monuments nearby. Overall a fun place to visit if you're nearby and wandering the park or visiting Heroes Square anyway

“A creepy statue.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Yeah, it's creepy alright, but one simply musts take a photo with it.
We actually saw little kids getting really scared of it. :)
Still, it's fun.

“Statue in the city park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

The Anonymus Szobor is quite a special statue located next to the Vahdhunyad castle. Don't have a clue who the guy is, but it's a nice setting , trees surrounding
