Lajos Kossuth House

On my rather random walks in the older parts of town I always run into this large mansion, in memory of an Hungarian nobleman who stayed there in 1850-51.

Wikipedia: "Lajos Kossuth de Udvard et Kossuthfalva (Hungarian: [ˈlɒjoʃ ˈkoʃut], Slovak: Ľudovít Košút, archaically English: Louis Kossuth) 19 September 1802 – 20 March 1894) was a Hungarian nobleman, lawyer, journalist, politician, statesman and Governor-President of the Kingdom of Hungary during the revolution of 1848–49. With the help of his talent in oratory in political debates and public speeches, Kossuth emerged from a poor gentry family into regent-president of Kingdom of Hungary. As the most influential contemporary American journalist Horace Greeley said of Kossuth: "Among the orators, patriots, statesmen, exiles, he has, living or dead, no superior." Kossuth's powerful English and American speeches so impressed and touched the most famous contemporary American orator Daniel Webster, that he wrote a book about Kossuth's life. He was widely honored during his lifetime, including in Great Britain and the United States, as a freedom fighter and bellwether of democracy in Europe. Kossuth's bronze bust can be found in the United States Capitol with the inscription: Father of Hungarian Democracy, Hungarian Statesman, Freedom Fighter, 1848–1849. "

When I visited it was not possible to visit rooms, so one had to stand on the doorsill and look at the, obviously more detailed, displays. I managed to ruin the one picture of the "memory room", however, that did not look impressive. In the end I had the feeling of just visiting a large house of a well-to-do family of that period that just happened to have housed a famous man. Niceish, though.
