The statue of Stephen I, also known as King Saint Stephen who was the first King of Hungary from 1000 or 1001, until his death in 1038 riding on a horse is a must see while visiting Budapest. Stephen was the first member of his family to become a devout Christian. He was crowned on 25 December 1000 or 1 January 1001 with a crown sent by Pope Sylvester II. This magnificent statue by the Matthew Church deserves a visit to admire its elaborate details. The view of the City of Budapest and the Danube River from the surrounding of the statue is fantastic.
Great statue of the first King of Hungary mounted on a horse, ruling around 1000-1038 AD. The pedestal is futures episodes of King's life. It is a great spot for overview of Matthias Church as welk as panoramic view of Budapest, especially at night.
