A huge carved stone piece in excellent condition and is easily accessible from the Esztergom Basilica. The location also provides great viewpoints of the Danube and surrounding countryside. You have to take photos and it's free.

Great panoramic view at this spot to the river. A small nice cafe near the place. Worth to see the view if you already there.

Beautiful view of the Danube and the Slovakian border. With the Basilica in the background I can only imagine how the view is from the Slovakian side of the river- the relationship steeped in history.

Unfortunately, this sculpture is a bit disintegrating, it would deserve a quick fix until it is irretrievably damaged

Nice walk up to the statue and a great view across the Danube into Slovakia. The area is well done with a coffee shop and rest rooms also nearby

This beautiful sculpture stands looking over the Danube and it is stunning in its beautiful simplicity. We visited it after we toured the Basilica.

Quite lovely and unexpected. Interesting design and a shame more people don't see it. If you have the chance to get there it makes great pictures.
