Winter’s Special Protection | Mihály Vörösmarty

Winter Protection of Carrara marble statue of Mihály Vörösmarty

Downtown Pest. Here’s where the Carrara marble statue of Mihály Vörösmarty can be found. If you are a tourist visiting during this time, you see it only in this manner. Just because in Winter, this statue is protected in this ‘bubble-like’ special protective material.

Ede Kallós and architect Ede Telcs had their work made from Haraszt quarry limestone blocks. Mihály Vörösmarty is surrounded by figures representing all classes of society: worker with his wife and small son, man wearing traditional ceremonial clothes, woman with a baby in her arms, schoolboy, old peasant, farmer and peasant girl, gentlewoman and grown-up student, shepherd boy, and old woman with her grandchild. If you are curious, click here for the ‘unveiled version‘ :)

Mai Mano Cafe

DSC01869

I like the colours of this cafe called ‘Mai Mano‘ which is right opposite Moulin Rouge in sixth’s district of Budapest (Nagymező Street 20). Mai Mano was the emperor’s photographer at the turn of the century. Near it is a photo exhibition hall. If you like art nouveau and arabesque motifs, you need to check the inside of this cafe.

Along the Andrássy ut.


This is one of the unit that is lined with the spectacular Neo-renaissance mansions and townhouses featuring fine facades and interiors, which was recognised as a World Heritage Site in 2002. In some walking distance, you can see the Franz Liszt square which is a square with the Academy of Music and a multitude of cafés.

First Snow in Budapest 2010

The first snow has arrived in Budapest today. It is combined with rain and altogether it was quite heavy for the first hour. It is the time of the year to stay warm, other than ensuring your winter coat is warm enough, a hot ginger tea or mulled wine helps greatly…
