Panoramas of the World

Gellért Hill (Budapest)

There is a fantastic view from the Gellért Hill. The Statue of Liberty on its summit is visible from a distance.

Admiral Miklós Horthy ordered the statue from the sculptor Zsigmond Kisfaludy Stróbl. Originally, it had an airplane propeller in its hands, which was to honor the son of the admiral. The son died in an accident at the beginning of the Second World War, when he was a test pilot. After the invasion of the Red Army, the propeller was exchanged with a palm branch. It was then considered a symbol for the liberation from the authoritarian Horthy regime which was allied with Hitler’s Germany.
