The sculpture of Liszt is quite interesting. However, it is completely surrounded by outdoor tables set up by restaurants. It is hard to admire the sculpture in leisure without feeling conscious of the watchful eyes of the restaurant patrons. Other than the sculpture, it is...More

There is a nice sculpture of F. Liszt, big and really well done. It’s right next to the incredible Music Academy. Apart from that, there are just empty restaurants and homeless people around.
