A gorgeous statue.
Feb 2020
This statue never ceases to amaze me, even after visiting it so many times.
It is enigmatic, beautiful, almost magical-looking, and it is BY FAR Budapest's best looking statue.
Don't miss a selfie with it.

Cool statue
Feb 2020
Located within the courtyard of Vajdahunyad Castle, is this very interesting statue, of a hooded figure, titled anonymous, the unknown chronicler, hence the pen in the left hand, which is rubbed by visiting writers for inspiration.

A mysterious person from the History
Feb 2020
This famous statue is located in Városliget near Vajdahunyad Castle, just walking distance from Heroes' Square. It's worth a visit, because it's an unusual statue of a notary of King Béla. (from 12-13 century). The statue was made in 1903 by Miklós Ligeti a young sculptor. It's a bit ominous and mysterious but I like it and visit it when I'm in Budapest.

Ominous and Intriguing
Dec 2019
The Anonymus statue in the grounds of Vajdahunyad Castle is just a short walk from Heroes Square and one I would highly recommend doing as a joint effort. The statue itself is quite a dark and ominous looking one.

The identity of the actual man has always been subject to debate by many scholars but the most likely is that the man was a notary to a king in Hungary. The constant debate and uncertainty surrounding the identity has left the man simply known as "Anonymus".

The statue itself is quite a dark looking thing, especially when getting up close and looking into the eyes. Be sure to check it out when in the area.

The statue is located in the city park, next to Vajdahunyad Castle and looks quite ominous. Perfect for photography.

Creepily cool

The statue looks a bit creepy, especially if you look him in his dark eyes. It is a very cool statue and worth a visit.

A true piece of art!
Sep 2019
If you want to represent a character that has remained known in history as "anonymus", then that's exactly how I imagined his statue - a man without a face! Even its existence cannot be accurately known even though it wrote the most important medieval Hungarian chronicle - Gesta Hungarorum. Anonymus presented himself as "the chronicler of the great King Bela", but Hungary had 4 kings with this name between the XII-XIII centuries. I liked!

Interesting what you see when you take a walk
Jul 2019
We decided to walk back to our hotel on top of Buda from the Pest side. Along the wat we came upon this statue. Pretty interesting and mysterious. No one seemed to know anything much about it at the hotel. But, if you pay attention you see lots of interesting things on the side of the moutains
