It was a fun adventure trying to find out way to the park via public transport. It was not too difficult or long a trip. The park itself is quite fascinating. I've never seen sculptures like these and in such an odd setting, all arranged...More

Getting to Momento Park by public transport turned out to be a bit of an adventure. The attraction’s website has contradictory information – it says to change to the 101 or 150 bus at Kelenfold Vasutaliamas (KV); but also in an attachment gives details for...More

This park is definitely worth visiting if you are interested in Cold War history and how the Soviet Union used art to convey its message. But that comes with a few caveats. First, there is little to describe anything about the sculptures displayed. Some context...More

An interesting collection of communist statues, although they could have fitted far more into the space! A bit out of the way, I'd recommend taking a taxi and asking it to wait for you - they are so cheap in Budapest and I don't think...More

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

This park has to be seen, its just amazing, to think that these stood in and around Budapest, some of them are massive, you can't comprehend the sheer scale of them. Its such an interesting place to visit, walking round the park gives you an...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

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.
