You could get a sore neck wondering the streets of Budapest looking up endless sculptures on buildings. Some are war damaged but still carries its dignity and beauty.
Hungary is a country of notable artists. Rudolf Weyr is hence one of the most distinguished artists of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and the imperial couple personally calls him on for the sculptures of Empress Sissi’s Villa Hermes pediments. In 1898, he is entrusted with the statue of Emperor Franz Joseph I. They symbolize the three virtues that every ruler should possess - justice, wisdom and strength. Just above the main gate are the by two genii supported imperial coat of arms of Johann Silbernagel and a building inscription attached.
Budapest is big on art and culture. There are more than 40 theaters and over 100 museums and galleries in the city. Many concerts, festivals and events are held year-round, not to mention performances at the famous Opera House, which is considered to be among the best opera houses in the world.
