Statue of Damjanich and the Tabán - Szolnok

In front of the Art Colony you can find one of the symbols of Szolnok, the monument made of white Carrara marble which was set in the memory of János Damjanich military general and the heroic fight of his soldiers in 1912. Opposite to the statue, on the other side of the river Zagyva you can find the district called Tabán. This area of the town preserved the historical street structure of the earlier fishing village, today already including renewed, modern houses. This is a favorite part of the town both for the people living here and the visitors.
