The mural team at Színes Város have just painted an iconic scene from Ferenc Molnár’s revered children’s book, the Paul Street Boys. You can see the lads playing marbles on the firewall of the last residential building along Corvin sétány, where much of the century-old story takes place.

District VIII is featured heavily throughout Ferenc Molnár’s evergreen work, the Paul Street Boys, about gangs of lads and their adventures. A statue has already been put up here showing the boys playing marbles.

Now, on Leonardo da Vinci utca, there’s a mural, too, thanks to famed urban muralists Színes Város and the graphics of Aliz Buzás, who has already created several works around the city.
