Abdurrahman Abdi Arnaut Pasha Memorial

Abdi the Albanian was a valiant fighter who served as governor of Buda before dying during combat in 1686. Respected by his comrades and enemies, this memorial was actually funded by the descendants of a Habsburg soldier. The inscription, in Hungarian and Turkish, says: “The last governor of the 145 year long Turkish occupation of Buda, Abdurrahman Abdi Pasha the Albanian fell at this place on September 2, 1686, when he was 70 years old. He was a heroic enemy, may he rest in peace.” What’s great about the memorial is the serene surroundings in which it’s set and the wonderful views of the sweeping Buda hills as they extend far off into the distant horizon.
