0 Budapest: The Metro and Statues Around Town

 All of the images here of metro stations are from the yellow line, the original underground line and the first metro system on the Continent, inaugurated for the millennial celebrations of 1896.

After reconstruction during the later 20th century the metro stations were preserved in their original constructs.

 Sculpture in the Kálvin tér underpass.

 Statue of Tiresias (or some other man and dog?) at Kossuth Lajos tér metro stop.

 The Time Wheel in City Park.
It was quite underwhelming.

 Statue of 19th century poet Petőfi Sándor.

 The Little Princess, on the Pest banks of the Danube.

 A statue of a girl and her dog on the Pest banks of the Danube.

 The Liberty Statue (Szabadság Szobor) on Gellért Hill.

This statue of a portly policeman stands across from St. Stephen's Basilica.  Lots of people took their picture next to him, so, on our last day, we figured we might as well join!
