Atlas Obscura Little Nemecsek Statue

There are many statues and sculptures dotted around the city of Budapest. Most represent the famous deeds of real people. However, lurking amid lush green lilypads and cowering in the dismal brown waters of a public garden lies a very different sculpture than others found around the city. The statue immortalizes a key scene from a century-old local novel. This little fictional fellow, Ernö Nemecsek, has two statues in the city and even a plaque to commemorate his death.

The story of The Paul Street Boys by Ferenc Molnár was first published in 1906 and has become one of the most famous Hungarian novels in and outside the country.
