Monday Mural - Budapest isn't small

On this 245 sq mt (2637 sq ft) wall in Kazinczy street in Budapest, is a map of the city saying "Budapest isn't so small" (Budapest nem ekkora) painted by Richard Orosz. The artist's intention is to draw attention of the tourists in District VII (Jewish quarter) to visit other areas of Budapest just a short distance away.
Just under the map is the phrase " Budapest is much bigger than you think and there is life beyond it".

  2. Simply amazing, Sami. Seeing a map of the entire Buda and Pest areas helped me recall all the wonderful days you spent there. Great find, too.

  7. Dearest Sami,
    Both of us have been to the Jewish quarter on our trip to Prague, Budapest and Vienna and I'm glad we got that chance!
    Great mural that no doubt will draw attention and hopefully reaches its goal too.
    Hugs,
    Mariette
