Glancing Across the Danube
The promenade shown in prior posts is on the Pest side of the Danube. Glancing across the way are the Royal Castle and a bit to the left the Gellert monument on the hill named after Bishop Gellert (who was rolled down the cliffs in a barrel from this location by the Turks when he would not renounce his faith). That's the statue with the white half-circle back drop in the greenery.
