Statue of Jedlik Ányos and Czuczor Gergely
Among the many things that fascinate me in a foreign country is the statues of great personalities put up in the squares. I thoroughly enjoy seeing, clicking and reading about these statues of such remote places in the world. They are the ones who have shaped up the future of their country, knowing them helps to know the country better.
At one end of the Szechenyi Square there are the statues of Stephen Ányos Jedlik and Gergely Czuczor. They are cousins. Both were professors at the school run by the Order of Saint Benedict. Gergely Czuczor born in 1800 was a Magyar poet. Stephen Ányos Jedlik was the inventor of the principle of dynamo self-excitation. He is well known for his contributions to the fields of science. But the invention of the dynamo is linked to Siemens’ name because Jedlik’s invention was not noticed by that time.
