Statue of Gellert, Budapest
If you walk down the hill from the Citadella towards Erzsebet Hid (Elizabeth Bridge) you will come across this statue of St. Gellert, an eleventh-century martyr According to legend this is the spot from where pegans pushed the missionary bishop, sealed in a barrel, down into the Danube. The striking statue is enhanced by a semicircular colonnade behind a natural spring which rises to the surfice at this point, and which turns into a waterfall bellow the statue. Statue of Gellert is located in a pleasant spot with an artificial waterfall. The monument stands some ten meters high and was built in 1904. The surrounding area is an ideal place to sit for a while and enjoy the view. Pack a picnic lunch, stroll, and/or just relax into history.
