Pinsteps. Cross On Gellert Hill, Budapest
Places to visit in Budapest. Languages: en, ru, he

The cross on the Gellert Hill symbolizes the victory of Christianity over the pagans. In 1044 the Magyars revolted against the Christian faith. Gellert was put in a barrel and rolled along the hillsides until it perished in the dark waters of Danuba. But after a few years, Christianity returned with renewed vigor and Hungary became one of the most ardent admirers of Catholicism.
