Admission to Memento Park and all sights
Guided tour
Transfer from Budapest
  • See 42 real communist-era propaganda statues on display, and ponder the fine balance between democracy and dictatorship
  • Step into the shoes of a secret police agent with a short film made using real archival footage, and witness the tactics of communist enforcers
  • Pose for a photo with an iconic Trabant automobile - the famous car with no tachometer, headlights, indicators, fuel gauge, rear seat belts, or external fuel door!

Think history is a thing of the past? Think again! At Memento Park in Budapest, the all-too-recent ghost of Communism is ever-present. This unique and arresting cultural site commemorates Communism's cult of personality, by displaying towering statues of ideology all-stars like Stalin, Lenin, Marx, and Engels.

As you wander through the park, you'll happen across 42 real communist-era propaganda statues, all stripped of their obedient crowds and armies. It's a study on dictatorship, democracy, and the fragile balance between them - and it is rather mind-blowing.

It's a startling experience to come face-to-face with very real relics of totalitarian ideology. Memento Park features statues removed after the fall of Hungarian Communism, and allows you to think about them freely.

After familiarizing yourself with the crushing boots of communist propaganda, you'll be ready to step into the shoes of a secret police agent. The Life of an Agent is a short film made using original footage, that documents the formerly secret and often brutal tactics used by communist-era spies and police.

A final photo-op with the iconic Trabant car will complete your visit. This vehicle has become deeply symbolic of the struggles of communist manufacturing due to its total lack of tachometer, headlights, indicators, fuel gauge, rear seat belts, or external fuel door.

the range of soviet era monuments was fascinating and it is important that they should be preserved for posterity. We learn nothing by destroying.

Very thought provoking - must have the guide book as you go round otherwise hard to understand what everything is. Quite a way out of city centre but not too far - 25mins in taxi. Lots of photo...
