A graveyard for previously heroic Communist statues; nice idea, but I would have appreciated a bit more advice about individual statues (their locations, histories, significance, etc.). In an outer Buda suburb, so slightly tedious to get there by Metro and then bus, so this is not a good choice if you are pressed for time. Stalin's boots are located here... More

The park is a collection of the former "socialist regime" sculptures. You should take a long bus-ride 101 E, 101 B or 150 45 minutes to get there.from the middle of the city. There are 42 different statues.

It seems gratifyingly ironic that grandiose communist era statues should end up in an nondescript site in Buda. This is an interesting diversion although I wouldn't put it top of the list of things to see in Budapest. There are some huge bronze and stone statues featuring gloriously heroic Soviet soldiers and sailors which are simultaneously ridiculous in their original... More

I had heard much about this open air museum and it did not disappoint. The statues and plaques were impressive! The park itself provided an austere and cold glimpse into a former soviet era that will always serve as a reminder to visitors of Hungary's history. Memento Park could be easily reached by public bus from Kelenföld vasútállomás Metro/bus station,... More

It's the statue, bust, and monument graveyard from the old communist era! When that regime fell, a lot of the plaques and statues were hauled off and planted here. It's about a 15 minute Uber ride from Budapest city center, and well worth it. We totally enjoyed looking and learning about each piece. I would definitely recommend taking an hour... More

I really enjoyed looking at how Hungary has preserved their monuments to mark their history without letting their history define who they are now. Very, very well done!

Home to more than 40 statues, busts and plaques of Lenin, Marx, Béla Kun and others whose likenesses have ended up on trash heaps elsewhere, Memento Park, 10km southwest of the city center, is truly a mind-blowing place to visit. Here you'll find the replicated remains of Stalin’s boots (all that was left after a crowd pulled the enormous statue... More

Very interesting, especially as we approach the 1917 Russian Revolution centenary and witness the legacy here. This was a very atmospheric place and the status are eerie, but a bit of a paint to get to. As this is becoming one of the must see attractions in Budapest they really need to have a sign outside the metro at the... More

So we took a bus , a tram and another bus - with a short stop for Palinka and we arrived at a park with 40 communist statues. It was really interesting to see the remnants of the past displayed in such a strange setting. There weren't many people there which added to the strangeness but it was a worthwhile... More

It's quite small and basic for the price (5€). At the entrance you have no explanation, no historical context, nothing. Excepted a phone booth with the voice of different communists. The booklet with the name/dates/picture/role is quite dirty and broken. You can also see a car which was a typical car of this period. And then around 30 statues, some... More
