French Monument

History

The idea of Miklós Zsolnay, he also had a major role in its implementation. It was here that the major field-hospital was situated at the time of the Napoleon wars, more than 2000 soldiers being treated in the facilities of the city between 1809 and 1810. A hundred years later a radical anti-German trend formulated in Hungary, which encouraged the formation of alliances with the French. The idea of the monument of Pécs well suited this trend. The monument caused a stir in the European newspapers and magazines. The French were delighted, but a hostile reaction came from the German press.
