The statue might look old but it's not, it was erected in 1906. St Stephen was the first king of Hungary. You can find the statue at the back of the St. Matthias church by the Fisherman's Bastion.

The statue of St Stephen is located at one of the hills overlooking the city and the river and in its settings the statue is quite impressive, you cannot miss it when venturing to the "fisher mans bastion".

outstanding buildings in Europe and an enviable
natural landscape with stunning views onto the Danube.
Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a
glimpse into the golden years of the Austro-Hungarian
empire and the lives led by the aristocracy at the
time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many
