DescriptionDiscover gigantic monuments of the communist dictatorship and learn the history of this era in Hungary. At the end of the communist era, all statutes were removed from the streets of Budapest and set up in this park as a reminder of the era. Memento Park portrays the fall of communism in a unique way. On arrival, you will see Stalin's enormous grandstand, a replica of the one that used to stand in the former Parade square where Socialist holidays were celebrated by the leaders of the party and the state. You can also learn about the historical background by exploring the photo exhibition and watching the documentary titled 'The Life of an Agent.' The park isn't all serious either. You can always pose for a selfie with the statue of Lenin or some Soviet Red Army soldiers.
