Ghosts of a communist past: visiting Memento Park in Budapest- a photo gallery

Memento Park is an open air museum located 10 kilometers outside Budapest’s city centre. This theme park takes you back to the communist past, with a collection of statues and monuments that were removed from the streets of Budapest after the fall of the system. There are statues of Hungarian Communist leaders, Lenin, Marx and Engels and other ‘heroes’ of the Cold War.

The park museum is well worth a visits if you’re interested in history, it give you a unique glimpse of how life used to be behind the iron curtain. At the same time it’s an homage to democracy.
