His sculptures can be found in several places all over the city: with Bálint Balassi on the Kodály Körönd, with the female figure defying the wind on the Danube Promenade, or with the Raoul Wallenberg monument in St. Stephen's Park.

Thus, Pestbuda offers only a virtual walk between the works depicting our national greats in Budapest.
