Statue of Károly Kisfaludy (Vienna Gate Square)
Kisfaludy and his notes
The bronze statue of the writer born near Győr, in Tét, stands on the Vienna Gate Square. Many legends are connected to the statue: if we take a look at the figure of Kisfaludy, we can see papers and a pen in his hands. As Győr is also known as the city of education because of its numerous reputable schools, in the morning we can see lots of diligent pupils hurrying to school in the downtown. Kisfaludy looks around the square shortly before 8 o’clock, and he notes down the names of pupils who are late to school. On his paper he also has a record of the cars parking in the ‘no parking’ zone in the square. As we now see, after his death, the renowned Hungarian poet and dramatist is still busy working for the city.
