Detective Colombo
Sep 2020
We were surprised to find the statue of detective Colombo, played by Peter Falk with his dog in Budapest. I loved this series and recognized him right away, the statue perfectly conveys the character and famous Colombo smile. Peter Falk has Hungarian roots, maybe that's why his statue was installed there.

Photo op

Think the main visit is for a photo op. Not a big statue but then again not sure how tall Peter Falk actually was. Worth a look if in the area.

Peter Falk on Falk Street
Feb 2020
Columbo, played by Peter Falk, had a Hungarian mother hence his statue in Budapest (the city does like a statue). Also present is his basset hound ‘Dog”.

Such a small statue
Jan 2020
It is just a small size statue close to the Parliament at the end of Falk Miksa Street.
It is just OK, nothing special.

Who doesn't love Columbo !!
Jan 2020
If you are planning on visiting the Parliament building you will only be a short walk from Columbo’s Statue.

Take Falk Miksa u heading towards Margaret Island and at the junction of the main road you will find Columbo himself.

Oh, and “just one more thing” after your visit if you head towards the bridge you will find yourself on the river bank and a fairly short walk (about ½ mile) back past the Parliament building and you will arrive at the Shoes on the Danube.

Love the "Extra" Statue by Columbo!
Dec 2019
We specifically sought out this statue because the friends we were with loved Columbo. He was certainly an iconic figure from our childhood but we wanted to see the dead squirrel with the pistol in his hand. We were all happy with our "find!" (Except for the taxi parked right behind Columbo and making it hard to take pics!)

“Just one more thing”
Dec 2019 • Friends
As a huge Colombo fan I was aware of the existence of his statue, with dog, in Budapest.

I was not disappointed, obligatory photo next to the statue ... very happy man.

Yet Another Statue
Nov 2019
I have no idea why Budapest would have a statue of the American Detective, but its a good likeness of the scruffy man.

My favourite statue
Nov 2019
I wanted to go here for my late dad, he loved Columbo and would have loved this statue, again we found it by accident and seemed so random but worth a picture.
