You can find the statue of Petőfi in almost every city. This is is one of those things, maybe not special, but part of the local culture.

One of Hungary's national poets, Sándor Petőfi was a busy guy and got around. He had a hard time staying in one place and so there are monuments to him throughout Hungary. This is another one. It is an attractive enough statue. No big deal.

Sandor Petofi was one of the most famous and well known Hungarian Poets. Lived between 1823-1849. He spent his life by fighyting for the freedom a Hungary. He was killed by Russian troops in 1849 when the czar sent troops to support the Austrian Empire against the Hungarian revolution. His life size statue was built in 1960. A copy of this staue was erected in 1970 in Milan, Italy. In every march on the anniversary of the 1948 revolution his statue always covered with flowers. A must when you are in Gyula.
