Sculpture by the Basilica in Estragom?

by Sylvia_4179

When I was in Estragom we admired the sculpture high on the cliff above the Danube but could not find any information about it's content or why it was placed there.

thanks - S

Do you mean the King Stephen coronation statue? (In Esztergom) i.e. this one : https://www.acclaimimages.com/_gallery/_print_pages/0214-0610-0408-5221.html

Re: Sculpture by the Basilica in Estragom?

That should be either:
1. St Stephen's Coronation Place, an open-air altar set up at the place where the founder of the Hungarian state, St Stephen (I) was coronated.
At this place, a church was built at the location somewhere between the northern tower of the Basilica and St Stephen's statue. Later on, in this church (founded by Chief Geza to commemorate the martyr St Stephen - not the same St Stephen as the founder-of-state!) the founder of the Hungarian state, King St Stephen (I) was coronated. In August 2000 an open air altar was set up, which is a national memorial ground.

or
2. St Stephen's Statue - King St Stephen's Baroque statue was sculptured by József HEBENSTREIT in 1770-71. It's located along the walkway to the parking lot. it's base is new.

Travel Tips for Esztergom

Danubian bridge linking Hungary and Slovakia

by voyageur2

When you arrive to Esztergom, you will see the bridge between two countries. Crossing Danube by walking is a great experience and do not miss that. Sturovo is also lovely town. During our week in Hungary, the day we visit Esztergom was the only rainy day. Anyway it was a light rain. So we enjoyed many tones of green and understood why this destination is so popular for many centuries.

Mária Valéria bridge

by penumbra

The Mária Valéria bridge crosses the Danube river to connect Esztergom in Hungary and Štúrovo in Slovakia. The original bridge was constructed in 1895 but was damaged in 1919 by an accidental explosion. After being rebuilt in 1927, the bridge lasted until 1944 when the retreating German army destroyed the bridge. The most recent incarnation of the bridge was completed in 2001 with the assistance of a grant from the European Union.

Friendly small town

by aramat

I think Esztergom is a very pleasant place - heritage buildings, pretty views, lots of green.... The banks of the Danube are the perfect place for a stroll.

The Slovak town Sturovo (Parkany in Hungarian) is just a few minutes walk along the newly rebuilt Maria Valeria bridge over the Danube.

The Cathdral

by kaloz

We went on Sunday to go to mass, there are signs warning tourists that they are not welcome during services. We suffered many stares as we entered, but when we joined in the stares dissolved into smiles. The music was terrific, and the power of the organ made you feel that God was listening. Listening to the organ. A funny thing, the handicapped parking spaces were halfway down the parking lot. Be sure to go to the basement!! There are some surprises to be discovered. While there a tour group came in hit one highlight and left, and never saw the best thing! So take your time.

The Maria Valeria Bridge

by aramat

As I said, I really love this bridge. There are at least three reasons to walk accross it: (1) the view of Esztergom and the Cathedral is the best from the bridge, (2) it is "going abroad", Sturovo is nice, and food is cheaper than on the Hungarian side, and (3) the steel structure of the bridge's spans is really interesting.
