I remembered seeing this group of women with their umbrellas standing (as if they were real) in the rain in the Fo-ter of Obuda (Budapest) near the famous Sipos fish restaurant. Then someone told me that the sculptor's house, now a museum, is within a...More

If you like sculptures, visit the Varga Museum. It is small, but jammed with pieces and you will receive a personal tour of the grounds. Inexpensive, interesting and intelligent.
