Anonymus Szobor (Anonymous' Statue) pays tribute to the nameless storyteller and the first medieval Hungarian chronicler. Contemporary sculptor Miklós Ligeti portrayed this important historical figure as one who is hiding his face under a hood. Look for the inscription in Latin at the base of the monument, which translates to "the notary of the most glorious King Béla." Anonymus' chronicles provide an insight into medieval Hungary and the origin of the Hungarians. Locals believe that touching the figure's pen makes you a better writer.

Anonymus Szobor (Anonymous' Statue) reviews
An interesting statue, quite dark but cool. It's located in a big park close to Heroes Square so, if you are in the area, it worth a short visit. more »
This statue never ceases to amaze me, even after visiting it so many times. It is enigmatic, beautiful, almost magical-looking, and it is BY FAR Budapest's best looking statue. Don't miss a selfie... more »
This is one of the coolest statues in a City that has literally a thousand of them. Make sure to rub his pen for good luck!
Intriguing story. Make sure to have lunch at the restaurant or buy something Hungarian from the market. It’s a peaceful location
