The statue of St. John of Nepomuk in the Horváth Garden is being renovated. The original of the work dates back to the 19th century. It preserved the banks of the Devil's Trench from the first half of the 19th century, but the old, damaged statue was demolished in the 1960s, and in 1999 the statue, which can still be seen today, was completed and restored.

One of the famous buildings in Buda was the House of Creation (Teremtés-ház), which later, as House of Formation (Alkotás-ház), gave the name of the street. On the facade of the house was a relief called Creation, which was considered one of the most beautiful works in all of Buda. The work probably owes its existence to Haydn's oratorio, The Creation, presented in 1800 at the Buda Castle. The building was demolished 85 years ago and replaced by a six-story house. On the occasion of the anniversary, Pestubda presents the history of the former famous building.

The name and legend of Saint Gellért is known not only to the Hungarians, but certainly to the tourists visiting here. If for no other reason, because the Gellért Hill statue of the first martyr of Christian Hungary is an integral part of the Budapest cityscape; the bishop has been holding the cross high above the capital for more than a hundred and ten years. The memory of Bishop Gellért, who died a martyr's death in 975 years, is preserved not only on the mountain, but also in many other works in the capital.

There is an almost average 18th-century church, the history of which is much more exciting than its simple yellow walls would suggest.

The bride was the widow of Károly Zichy, and the groom was István Széchenyi.
