Of all the statues in Budapest – and there are many – this is a particular favorite. It’s only 12-years-old, created in 2001 by Pál Ko. Check out the details on the leggings and toes.
On the masts of the Liberty Bridge, you can just glimpse the bronze statues of the Turul, a divine messenger of Magyar mythology. A symbol of power and nobility, the falcon-like Turul makes its home in the tree of life, in company with the spirits of unborn children in the form of birds. You’ll see it on the Hungarian coat of arms.
