  • At the entrance that divides the square with the presidential palace, there is a gate, a staircase and a sculpture. The gate is baroque and very keyly and striking. It is ideal for photography but there is always an incredible crowd of tourists on those stairs and around the gate. A sculpture facing the Danube and Pedestti is the symbol of the Hungarian-bird (Eagle) Turul. You can see the sculpture of this bird in many historical places in Hungary. According to legend, the Turul led the Arpada and the Hungarian tribes to a new one with a sword in its claws. The bird dropped it in Panonian Nizia and the Hungarians decided to settle in.
