Hungarian Siphon Fountain/Monument

My Hungarian contact, Kiss Imre, sent me this fanastic photo today. He wrote: “How do you like this fountain from GYŐR, the town where our ÁNYOS JEDLIK invented his soda making technology?” According to Wikipedia, he was a Hungarian inventor, engineer, physicist, and Benedictine priest. He is considered by Hungarians and Slovaks to be the unsung father of the dynamo and electric motor.

But, in any case, isn’t this just so cool! It looks like it is made of a thick glass, the color of the average green seltzer siphon.
