A lovely park with various statues scattered around the park. I recommend getting the guide book for 1500 HUF as the stories behind the statues are as interesting as the statues themselves. Across the road from the park an interesting movie screens (included in the...More

I'm a sucker for Soviet art and propaganda so this place is a must see. Go to Deak Ferenc square to catch the dedicated bus tour (approx 15 minutes to/from the park). If you have the City Hopper bus tour booklet you will get 20%...More

I think this little park is well worth the time. Budapest unlike most other cities behind the iron curtain decided to keep some of the soviet era statues and the like rather than destroy them all. I was very interested in seeing them and seeing...More

Great outdoor arena for an insight into Hungary's history whilst the Russian Red army were trying to force communism into the Hungarian people's culture. Some immense statues, the most remembered one is the remains of the statue of Joe Stalin, it was 8 metres tall...More

The statues are impressive but as there is no signage to explain who it is and what is the significance of the statue it is hardly worth the effort to get there. They do sell books explaining what or who the statue is but after...More

Might not be for everyone but I feel most people will be able to take something away from a visit here. If you have any type of interest in history at all, then this is a must see. You can take direct bus from Deak...More

This park is a bit of a journey out of central Budapest. If you don't have easy transport it might not be for you. We had a taxi and had him wait for us. We went in for 25-30 minutes and the taxi did a...More

The park is situated on the outskirts of the Buda part of the city. I used Metro line 4 (from Kálvin square), plus bus 150 traveling through the outlying suburbs (journey time on this route 30 mins). Being very interested in history, I was expecting...More

I think it would depend on how good a cyclist you are but it is above the Buda side and I believe took us around 15mins or so in a minibus, I'm not sure how well signposted it is and what facilities there would be to store... More

Yes, I think it was 1500, and the shop (in keeping with good communistic tradition!) had cheap water and stuff. The guidebook is an absolute must.
