Lions’ Gate at Buda Castle in Budapest, Hungary

Lions’ Gate is the transition from the Western Forecourt to the Lion’s Courtyard. Between the four columns with Corinthian capitals are two sculptures representing Nike, the Greek goddess of victory. Anchoring the sides are two statues in niches crowned with Turuls from Hungarian mythology. On top of the arch is the small coat of arms of Hungary as it appeared in the mid-19th century until 1918.
