Statue of Zoltán Kodály

Closing time
at 24:00


The Kecskemét-born composer and music teacher Zoltán Kodály had many ties to Pécs, both through the choir movement and through his family connections.In 1976, the city paid tribute to his memory by erecting a full-length bronze statue. The work was erected at the request of the artist, Imre Varga, with his back to the Duomo, facing the former playground, i.e. the children, whose musical education was more important to him than anything else. It shows Kodály as a frail old man walking almost unnoticed among the chestnut trees.
