Photos - Statue Park Budapest

Szobor Park is a theme park close to Budapest were many of Hungaria´s communist statues that were taken down after the end of communism are now displayed. Many statues are dedicated to local communists, others to the Red Army, Lenin and Marx. A friend of Comtourist was in the area and shot some nice pictures for us.

Szobor Park, recently renamed Memento Park has 42 pieces dating from 1942 to 1989. There is also a Trabant on display and there is an exposition inside a building. Currently the park has added a replica of the tribune on which a giant Stalin statue stood in the centre of Budapest until it was pulled down in 1956 during the revolution. Comtourist advices to visit the Statue Park when in Budapest and have the opportunity to go.
