I would not recommend making a special trip here, but, in your wondering, stop and view. It does represent some Hungarian history.

This is right at the Buda palace. It seem to depict a hunt. You can see the guy at the top with a crossbow and a dead deer lying next him. Below are two hound dogs, seemingly looking for more. WELL DONE!

This is not the same calibre as the Trevi Fountain in Rome, yet it has its own charm. It is quite photogenic and since it is located in Castle Hill, a must see attraction in Budapest, the fountain definitely merits a visit especially since it...More

We decided to wait for friends by this fountain area and got to listen to a description of the statues (and hunting dogs) that were facing us. It was not easy to hear, because of all the tourists (like us), but stories were interesting and...More

This fountain (aka, “Trevi Fountain of Budapest”) of statues is located in an open area, surrounded by buildings making up Buda Castle. It gives a glimpse of what life was like in days gone by. It shows King Matthias Corvinus of Hungary (King of Hungary...More

Any time I visit the castle, have a look at the hunting scene with a fountain. In summertime it is cooling, othervise just majestic.

Previous reviews have explained the story behind the fountain. The sculptures are well done and well placed in the fountain. I found the bloodhounds extremely impressive exhausted from the hunt.

The fountain was my favorite part of the visit to the castle. The sculptures are intricate and the hunting scene depicted is unique. The only negative is that like so many beautiful statues/fountains, it’s hard to get a good picture because people are always sitting...More

This is a must visit sight of Hungary. As some of the other reviews state this is Budapests answer to the Trevi fountain in Rome. Not as grand of course but still quite a picture. Make sure if you are in the area you don't...More
