When you walk around Budapest, it is always worth looking down to admire the beautiful manhole covers the city has. On many of them you can see the coat of arms of Budapest. The single tower with one gate represents Pest, the castle with three towers represents Buda and Óbuda (Old Buda). The coat of arms shield is held by a lion on the right and a griffin on the left. On the top of the shield there is the Holy Crown.
