It is very subjective opinion, but I love this monument, coz it always brings me back my childhood memories based on the Ferenc Molnar's novel.

This street monument is a must place to go for people who enjoyed reading the book by Milner about the two fighting groups of teenagers. The monument refers to one of the scenes described in the book.

I have read Paul Street Boys when I was at 6th grade. It was a really moving experience to re-read the book while walking the streets the boys played on. The monument, a little hard to find, is the treasure to top it all. I...More

These statues seem to be living. That's why they should be appreciated by everyone. Unfortunately, they are rather far away from the city center. That's why you could combine the visit with the holocaust museum (very close) and on the way back to the center,...More

After finding the statues, I now want to read the book - but, alas, it is not available on my Kindle! I will continue looking for the book to hopefully gain a better understanding of the Hungarian people.
