  Statue Park's poster
by Robert_Hun

A bizarr but interesting and spectacular therefore quite popular outdoor museum at the city SW limits.
After the change of the political system, statues of the communist era were removed from Budapest's streets to museums.
This is a unique collection of its kind.
The statues of Lenin, Marx, Engels, Dimitrov, memorials to soviet soldiers, communist martyrs and many more.
It's definitely an impressive nostalgia, good or bad, it's up to your taste :-)
Open every day from 1000 till sunset.
Cost: 600 HUF (free with Budapest Card)

Address: Budapest, Balatoni ut - Szabadkai utca corner
