Don’t forget to look under your feet!

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.

For more interesting facts, historic details, urban legends and beautifully illustrated maps, Kinga Tittel’s handy Budapest guide book, Fabulous Budapest is available at selected Libri and Líra bookstores, at the online Libra Bookshop, the gift shop of the Matthias Church, Opera gift shop, Souvenir Shop at District 1., 8 Tárnok Street.
