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.

This beautiful sphinx is guarding the entrance of the State Opera House on Andrassy ut. Why is she so special? Because it’s not a typical sphinx with the head of a woman and the body of a lion, but if you have a closer look you can see the she has breasts, too.
