I’m starting a new series to introduce you the most famous statues of Budapest and some of the hidden gems, too. These are the beautiful monuments of Budapest we usually see on our walking or driving tours in Buda and Pest.

Julianus and Gerhardus, Hungarian monks who travelled all the way to near the Ural Mountains in the 13th century to find Magna Hungaria, the territories where the Hungarians had lived before they started their migration to Europe and conquered the actual territories of Hungary.

A very special relic, the mummified right hand of St. Stephen, Hungary’s first Christian king who was crowned in 1000. The legend is that his body had been exhumed before he was canonised and that’s when his right hand and arm were found mummified. This relic can be seen today in the St. Stephen’s Basilica.
