We visited the park during our recent trip to Budapest. We caught the Metro & the bus which was a lovely way of seeing some more of the outskirts of the city. It was easy to find & well worth the trip. It was thought provoking to see the enormous statues & imagine what it must have been life as... More

This park is very interesting as it is a monument to the empty promises of the soviet rule. The statues show the propaganda of the soviet leaders. There is even a trabant car!

Organised the trip online and were picked up and taken there. We paid a bit extra for a tour guide which I think you will need. Made the visit more interesting. Great photo opportunity and enjoyed seeing the exhibits. Some of which are very impressive.

I quite liked this for the photo ops involved. My hubby loved it as he is very interested in the Soviet aspect. It's quite a distance from the city centre but is an adventure getting there. Also not far from the Tropicarium so you can do both on the same day.

Having been to Budapest a few times, we decided to venture further out and visit Memento Park. It is on the outskirts of Buda, further out than we thought. We caught a cab out because we thought we had limited time. We were also led to believe there would be cabs to get us back, but I guess because it... More

Wouldn't go out of my way to see this again.... it was good but you need 30min absolute max there. I thought there'd be more statues and more to see. What they have is undoubtedly impressive but it's a good trek out of the city.

Entry to the park is 1500 HUF. If you take the direct bus which leaves from Deak Ter it normally costs you 4900 HUF, but if you book on mementopark.hu (and pay online), you get a 40 % discount and pay only 2900 HUF. The entry ticket price is included in the price for the direct bus. We took the... More

What can one say? It's well out of Budapest city on the Buda side. We hired a taxi from our city centre hotel to and from venue. ( Taxi waited for us for 1.25 hours ) Overall it was 15000HUF which was pretty reasonable as this place is a trfle remote. Worth it I thought. 1500HUF to get in (about... More

This is not really a park, it is a collection of statues in a large garden. You could go round and see them all in twenty minutes maximum, but if you buy the guidebook and appreciate the history behind them, you should allow an hour plus time in the small museum. There are adequate toilets but no coffee. You can... More
