After the communistic era Hungary (1946 to 1988) also got rid of their statues that the city was covered with. Marx and Stalin and other symbolic statues from all over the city where collected and built up again in a separate area which is now know as the Memento park, a statue park far outside the city center in the district Budafok in Southern Budapest. For easy access there is a bus starting at 11 a.m. from Deák tér (in July and August also at 3 p.m.) to Memento Park which including the ticket costs 4.500 HUF, regular entrance fee costs 1.500 HUF (1.000 HUF for students and Budapest Card holders). There are cheaper alternatives by Budapest public transport, details you can find here. Of course the easiest and most comfortable way to access memento Park in Budapest is by car.
This outdoor museum with massive statues is a great activity for warm summer days but also enjoyable in the winter times and it is open from 10 a.m. till dawn. There are also group offers available, for further information please check the website which you can find below. You can book a guided tour right on spot for deeper information which starts daily at 11.45 plus further times during summer time, the price is an extra 1.200 HUF per person.
