From the garden, a wide staircase leads through the terraces towards the main building of the castle.
On the lower terrace on the right, we can see original Turkish turban-stone tombs back from the age of the Turkish occupation. On the left, Jenő Bory marked the tomb of a Russian soldier who died here in 1945 with a special combination of a five-point star and a stone cross.
Further in the terrace, at the resting area on the right we can admire the white marble portrait of Jenő Bory’s gorgeously young and beautiful wife. It was carved in his scholar years in Carrara in 1907 and is standing on a self-contained concrete wall which evokes the steles of the ancient classical period. Under the statue carved in the wall, we can read the maestro’s poem written to his wife.
In the back under the retaining wall of the second terrace, Bory lined up the images mainly of his contemporaries and his artist friends as a kind of pantheon. In the centre stands Mihály Munkácsi’s full-figure statue, which is the same as the plans made for the 1921 monument tender. Next to that, we find the images of painters like Gyula Benczúr, Bertalan Karlowszky, Róbert Nádler and others; architects such as Gyula Hüttl and Gyula Wälder and the actress queen Lujza Blaha. He placed here some beautiful portrais from his own master Alajos Strobl (1856-1926), for example the portrait of Frigyes Schulek the architect of Fisherman’s Bastion and those of two outstanding painters of the 19th century, Károly Lotz and Bertalan Székely. The portrait of Alajos Strobl made by Károly Damkó (1872-1955) and the bust of Pál Szinyei Merse made by Miklós Ligeti (1871-1944) can be seen here too.
In front of the pantheon we read a short statement written in golden mosaic on the floor: “The stones speak”. A short but meaningful sentence which expresses the artist’s ars poetica. It also shows us Bory’s attitude to life, respectful to the past and holds to lasting and steady virtues, and his artistic behaviours.
The middle of the terrace’s free area is taken by a sizable cast stone garden table decorated with white and green mosaic pieces. It makes the surroundings friendly with the feeling of home but without harming the seriousness of the architectural and artistic background.
