BUDAPEST STATUES PARK - STATUES' PARK HUNGARY

Budapest Statues ParkBudapest Statues Park – The Statue Park in Hungary - Well, would you believe it, a huge dumping ground for those massive Communist Statues, Memorials, Figures, etc representing the “glory” of the Communist Era which were “dethroned” when the Soviets were overthrown and put from Hungary.

You have to hand it to the Hungarians, here these gigantic symbols have been preserved for future generations but in a non-reverential way – surely better than smashing them to pieces as happened in other ex-Communist capitals.

Almost all the Statues, etc from Budapest was carted out to a big field and dumped. Most were almost undamaged. They have not been re-erected just left lying in an irregular way in the grass of the field. They are, indeed, a fascinating and historical record of the Communist regime.

The Statues Park is in the southwest of Budapest. XXII. Balatoni U. Take the red numbered bus 7-173 from Ferenciek Tere, then the M3 to the terminus at Etele Ter, and then a Volan bus to Diosd-Erd from gate 2 or 3.
