Downtown Budapest has almost no firewall that has not been used for such a purpose. Nearly half of these creations commemorate some historical event or draw attention to an item of national pride. The theme of the paintings ranges from Empress Sissi through the memorable 6:3 Hungarian football victory over England, all the way to various popular fairy-tale heroes and even the Rubik’s cube. Our personal favourite is one where a lead glass window by Miksa Róth comes to life. The remaining works depict scenes from the life of the district, or the importance of social responsibility or of the local community. The pedestals of bridges and the stairs of water towers and public buildings in many countryside towns also seem to be good spots for street art.
