The scuplture itself is very elaborate, nice, fits into the idea of "Gyor - city of sculptures".
I do not get the idea why the boatman has to be naked??

I am not sure what this sculpture mean and why it is there. But the Sculpture looks attractive and must have a link to this place. Our accomodation is less than a minutes walk to this sculpture. It right in the middle of the town

Funny sculpture of a naked boatman. It is in the center of the town so it is a great meetup point for friends. Tourists like to take photos with it. Small children can be seated in the boat for photo.

The statue is larger than the Little Mermaid in Copenhagen and that's about it really. It's nice and a good meeting spot.

You can't miss this sculpture; although it's one of many sculptures in Gyor, this one is in an intersection in mid city. Seems to be a meeting place for locals and lost tourists, so it's a great people watching spot.

Don't get too excited about this one. Walked past it first time although admittedly we were on the hunt for beer. It is exactly as advertised on the tin... a sculpture of a bloke a boat. If that sort of thing floats your boat then go for it.

Whew! So easy to get lost in this town, where all the streets look much the same, and don't necessarily run north/south or east/west. However, all the locals (and even most tourists) know "Boatman Square". So, whether your groups plans to split up, or even if they don't, agree to meet here. You'll be glad you did.
