Statue of Ferenc Liszt

Closing time
at 24:00


To the left of the entrance to the Bishop's Palace, on a symbolic balcony, stands Imre Varga's work, a plate sculpture commemorating Ferenc Liszt's concert in Pécs.

It commemorates the world-famous composer's visit to Pécs on 24 October 1846, when he was a guest of the Bishop of Pécs. It was here that he composed what became known as the 'Esztergom Mass' - the bishop turned bishop turned Esztergom primate. Liszt's figure faces the Cathedral, tradition has it, to hear the tinkling of the bells of the basilica and draw inspiration from it.
