Match of the Century Mural

As you walk down Rumbach Sebestyén street you will pass by a huge parking lot on your right. Go inside and check out Budapest’s largest public murals and take in a little bit of sporty history. This amazing piece of street art was created by Neopaint, an organization of mural artists, to pay tribute to Hungary’s one and only ‘Golden team’. Hungarians are madly proud of their football history, so it comes as no surprise that this match got its on mural. Known as the match of the century, the mural depicts the match when Öcsi Puskás and the Golden Team defeated England, who were undefeated for 90 years, at Wembley stadium in 1953.
