This small but interesting park has some fine examples of cold war statues and propaganda which are works of art in themselves if you forget about the reasons why they were produced in the first place. The park also includes a small museum of the...More

How to get there by public transport (really easy and cheap): For a return trip you will need 4 tickets (one for bus, one for metro - each way). Take bus 150 from Ujbuda-Központ (3rd last stop of M4). The bus takes 30 min. The...More
