I wasn't familiar with Attila József before our visit to Budapest, but this statue captured my attention immediately. His intense gaze stuck with me, and I came home with a dual translation of "By the Danube" -- a very fitting souvenir.

What is beautiful about Budapest is that it's full of statues and it they have an old romantic and imperial air to them. They are very beautiful. A small plaque with some little bit of history would definitely make this a 5star.

It's a seated statue of a man on the stairs near the Hungarian Parliment building, making it a great place to take pictures.

Well designed, somber statue, that unfortunately I could find no information nearby in English to educate me of him. I’ve since done that, but surely this need should be met at the place itself.

Nice piece of modern statuary in contrast to the many bronze pedestal statues around the town. Easy to see if you are visiting the Parliament

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
