Budapest stauary

There are some beautiful statues, friezes and fountains in Budapest. This was a very ornate fountain in one to the city's squares; it has 3 gods and 3 goddesses. The godesses are larger than life size, it is pretty spectacular.

What a shame that somebody has defaced this godess:

This statue was near the parliament building:

This boy is on the Pest side of the Danaube, on the riverside walk:

This boy is on the main shopping street, at one of the major pedestrian junctions:

Franz Liszt's statue, near the academy which bears his name:

Hermes, again on the main shopping street:

Wonderful girl with dog, on the Pest Danube riverside walk:

Fabulous statue of King/Saint Stefan, between the Matthias Church and Fisherman's Bastion, on Buda Hill:

Finally, assistance for those with poor, partial or no sight - a bronze landscape with braille labels, interpreting the view of Buda Hill from Pest, again on the riverside walk:
