Anonymous Statue

Monument in City Park & Beyond

The statue of the hooded figure opposite Vajdahunyad Castle is that of Anonymous, the unknown chronicler at the court of King Béla III who wrote a history of the early Magyars. Note the pen with the shiny tip in his hand; writers (both real and aspirant) stroke it for inspiration. It will also appeal to gamers with a fondness for Assassin's Creed.
