St Stephen Park contains a statue of Raoul Wallenberg doing battle with a snake (evil). Erected in 1999 and titled Kígyóölő (Serpent Slayer), it is a copy of the one created by sculptor Pál Pátzay that was removed by the communist regime in 1949. Facing the river is a row of Bauhaus apartments, which were the delight of modernists when they were built in the late 1920s. Enter from the southern end.
