Statue Park: Soviet Times Memory Lane

The Soviet Union left a lot of statues around Budapest when they left Hungary back in the day. Rather than trash them, destroy them, or leave them in their original place, Budapest decided to move the statues to a location just outside of the Budapest border. And while they were at it, they decided to make it an outdoor museum. Make some money… why not? Pete and I visited the museum a few weeks ago. It was a bit windy and cold (Hungary has had very cold weather this summer, tragically). Anyway, it was a funny museum to visit. We didn’t really bother to read any of the descriptions of where the statue once was; we were mostly entertained how overly dramatic the statues were. A tour group of grandmas and grandpas came through, and luckily, they were taking pictures as ridiculous as we were.
