When it comes down to Peter Falk - his most known impersonation is of the legendary detective "Colombo".
Now when you walk in Budapest , if you are near the street "Falk Miksa" you shall find the statue of Peter Falk in the character of Colombo.
The statue is really well done and very detailed and easy to recognize the "detective". So when in the area you can stop for a few min and a few pics.

The bronze sculpture of actor Peter Falk and his dog honors the fictional, cigar-smoking police detective Columbo's Hungarian roots.

One of the most unique statues in Budapest is the wonderful statue of the American TV detective so brilliantly portrayed by Peter Falk namely the Columbo Statue.
A life sized bronze statue ,the work of sculptor Geza Dezso Fekete ,the statue depicts the fictional detective in quizzical mode scratching his head ,cigar in hand with his trusty dog who's name was actually called "dog " looking on ,I grew up watching this TV series ,loved it ,still watch the re runs so it's a statue I always love to view ,it's well worth checking out if you're in the area and easy to locate along Falk Miksa Utca ,on the corner of Szent Istvan Korut.

Having grew up watching Columbo this was a must see for us. The statue is a great likeness. Easy to find as just set back from a busy main road

We like to find street art and we came across this statue and it is a good likeness. We loved the dog too.

I only went to find this statue as I was down that way to get to the pier for a night cruise and was in the area. Otherwise, its not really in the central tourist area.
It is a good likeness of the TV persona.
Its in a fairly residential area and has traffic around it at the end of street.
Worth a look if your in the area.

Great statue. Legend. Captures his personality really well, and I love the fact that his dog is also cast.

If you’re a Columbo fan it’s well worth seeking out and grabbing a snap! Plenty of shops and things nearby. I wonder what Mrs Columbo would think 🤔 😂

You may come across this statue but if you don't, it's well worth a visit. Locals must walk past daily and not give it a second look, but growing up in the 1970s, I had to find it!

The Columbo statue is great, but the dog!? It's s bit bizarre, but why not?

Just one more thing....

If there is a better thing to do in Budapest, or a better reason to visit Budapest, than seeing a statue of the TV character Columbo scratching his head while a dog looks up at him then I would love to know what it is. Incredible.
