"Gigantic Soviet Statues" Memento Park - Szoborpark Tip by MLW20

Memento Park - Szoborpark, Budapest: 33 reviews and 71 photos

A must see site is the Statue Park which has huge monuments from the "age of the Communist dictatorship".

The statues were originally located all over Budapest but were removed once there was a change in the political system.

There is a bus that leaves from the city around 11. It takes an hour to get to the park, you stay at the park for an hour and then return.
We didn't want to kill the whole middle of a day so we hired a cab driver and it took only 20 minutes to get to the park without traffic. He told us about many of the statues and what it was like in Hungary back in the Communist days. We spent probably 40 minutes at the park checking out the statues.
