Near the Hungarian Parliament Building there is an underground memorial to the 1956 October 25th uprising which ushered in a new communist age for the country. The memorial itself is quite moving. I would recommend a visit. It is free.

I spent about 45 minutes ‘down there’ and found it very interesting. Placed outside parliament on the square where many were killed made it even more poignant. Made you think as you could look at it from different angles knowing what we know now.

Controversial at the least. But when you consider the placement of the monument where much of the 1956 Hungarian uprising against the soviet regime took place and the ultimate fall of the USSR you start to understand the monument and the proximity to the Reagan statue. Worth a visit

The hungarian Revolution was one of my first rememberances on my parents new TV. It, like many sites in Budapest, is part of remembering. I also remembered the event as we were walking down a street and an older gentleman pointed out bullet holes in the wall of a building where revolutionarias were hiding.

This memorial is highly controversial. It commemorates the death of soviet soldiers on Hungarian ground, and its placed right in the same spot where many Hungarians where shot and murdered by soviet hands. Also there is a statue of Ronal Regan walking towards the memorial, and on the other side is the American embassy building, protected in a way that it is forbidden to take pictures in to that direction from the street.
This monument was built in 2014, so it is subject to all kind of speculation about the reasons for it, considering that the soviet star on the top of the monument is prohibited by law in Hungary, not even to be worn in a T-shirt.
It’s really close to the parliament building and if you think about the story and circumstances, it makes you wonder beyond what meets the eye, definitely worth walking by.

Most of the people in Budapest doesn't like too much this memorial. It is very modern but the question is whether it reflects the feeling of the Hungarians.

This is an underground exhibition and memorial to those people who died in the 1956 revolution and is located in Parliament square. Did not know a great deal about it so it was very interesting to gain all the detail of what happened. The story is told in a very understandable presentation regardless of language. Well worth visiting.

One of the most heart-rending episodes of the failed 1956 revolution, an attempt by the Hungarian people to free themselves of the yoke of the Soviet Union, is paid tribute to here, in this solemn underground exhibit, complete with video and many pictures documenting this sad episode. A well designed exhibit in a small underground space. Recommended if you care about people.

Interesting to learn about the failed revolution, and sad to learn that not all of the victims were identified. Didn't take long and was free. Most complete story about the history of communism and its ultimate demise. Recommended.
