Gellért

I wandered with the Danube beside me, until I reached the park, where I sat briefly looking at the Queen Erzsébet monument. I continued after that, underneath the Gellért Monument, looking up at the waterfall and the statue much higher above. I saw beautiful, yet crumbling and boarded up buildings, intricately decorated ceilings and street furniture that resembled a large die.

I reached the Gellért Baths after that, and then, the Cave Church. An interesting church carved into the rocks, originally founded by monks, who were later arrested by the secret police. I went inside and listened to to an audio tour, which talked about the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Back outside, I walked up the hills until I reached the Liberation Monument and then the citadel. Such great views of the city from up there.

Then back down and in a park, I met Buda and Pest, before reaching the Garden of Philosophy, where I was disappointed not to meet Sartre, Descartes or Plato, but instead met Jézus Krisztus, Buddha and Gandhi.

Beautiful!
It's interesting that they would consider Jesus, Buddha, and Gandhi philosophers when they were more religious or sociopolitical revolutionaries, but not even mention the usual philosophers..

Apparently there are three sets: one in Japan, one in the US and one in Hungary.

Unapplied philosophy is not worth a thing!
