While it's not a big enough attraction to go out of your way to see, if you're already in City Park, it's a cool thing to check out! It's the world's largest hourglass, which should be called a yearglass as it only needs to be...More

Apparently given the Budapest people for joining the European Union. Also it appears to be expensive to maintain by the government. Nevertheless the city touts it as an attraction. An attraction for the tourists. Maybe time better spent on other cultural pieces, of which there...More

Nice sculptured one-year timewheel, situated at the southern edge of Budapest's City Park. I missed an explanatory sign describing the background and purpose of this, but a Wikipedia search provided the necessary information.
