The house with the iron stump (Széchenyi Square)
He hit the nail on the head
The house got its name from the iron nail-tree on its corner. In 1833 Mátyás Zittrisch, a grocer, bought the building and he placed a tree trunk coated with iron bands and nails, copying the “Stock im Eisen” in Vienna, on the corner of the house. According to the traditions the traveling young craftsmen hit a nail into this stump as a memory of the time they had spent in the city.
