Notes on the Geography of Hungary: Budapest's Castle District: Photo 6

world pictures Hungary: Budapest's Castle District




The facade facing the river. It's all post-war, except for the equestrian statue. Prince Eugene (1863-1736) was a soldier in the service of the Habsburgs. He protected them on one side from the French and on the other from the Turks, but his position here is almost accidental. The statue, by Jozsef Rona (1861-1939), was placed here when Zenta, the town commissioning the work, could not afford it. The plan was to replace the statue here with one of Franz Joseph, but that never happened, so Eugene has kept his accidental perch for over a century now.
