Béla I (the Champion) king of Hungary - Szekszárd (Sechshard, Sechsard), Ungarn Béla I (the Champion) king of Hungary

Created by Márta Lesenyei in 1986

There is a commonly referred hypothesis which says that Szekszárd city got its name after King Béla I of Hungary. The explanation is that the king was brown-skinned and bald and these were called in old Hungarian "szög" and "szár" respectively, and that's how the settlement was named first Szegszárd, then after 1903 finally Szekszárd. The wirst written records about Szekszárd were found in chronicles from 1015. In 1061 Béla I King of Hungary established a Benedictine abbey here and later he was buried within its walls.

Town Hall or City Hall of Szekszárd - Szekszárd (Sechshard, Sechsard), Ungarn Town Hall or City Hall of Szekszárd

The original building of the City Hall (ot Town Hall) was designed by Károly Tormay (Krenmüller) and Henrik Huber, it was inaugurated in 1846. At the opening ceremony the world-famous Hungarian composer Ferenc (Franz) Liszt gave a concert within the walls of the neighboring County Hall. Initially the facade of the building also had a tympanum like on the County Hall, but later the colonnade sank and the building was cracked. Allegedly it was possible to look through the crack in the wall of the meeting room out to the square.

The facade was altered in Art Nouveau style (which was very famous at the turn of the 19th-20th centuries) by the plans of the local architect László Diczenty. Although the plaque at the main entrance says 1904, in reality the work was completed in 1908. The stone-carved coat of arms of Szekszárd was placed on the facade of the City Hall in 1985.

Bust statue of István Bezerédj, politician and rhetorician from the Hungarian reform age - Szekszárd (Sechshard, Sechsard), Ungarn Bust statue of István Bezerédj, politician and rhetorician from the Hungarian reform age

Created by Sándor Konrád in 1942

István Bezerédj (1796-1856) was the first Hungarian noble landlord, who signed a contract with his serfs to liberate them. At the National Assembly of 1844 he voluntarily committed himself to pay taxes, because the issue of the public burden sharing failed after a lengthy debate. By representing the city of Debrecen he was a member of the revolutionary parliament of 1848. In 1850 he was sentenced to confiscation of property and to death by hanging, but finally he was pardoned and exiled to his estate.

Interestingly the making of the statue took a very long time. The Casino of Szekszárd decided to create it already in 1896, but due to several reasons it was completed only in 1942.

The statue near the Roman Catholic church in the main square of Szekszárd was inspired by an initial in the Illuminated Chronicle (in Hungarian "Képes Krónika", in Latin "Chronicon Pictum" or "Chronica de rebus gestis Hungarorum", created by Mark of Kalt in around 1358). In the depicted scene (Saint) Ladislaus I King of Hungary saves a Hungarian girl from a Kun (Cuman) warrior. On the support of a statue there is a poem in praise of the King St. Ladislaus, it is the old Hungarian translation of a Latin hymn from 1470.
