DAILY PHOTO: Republic of Councils Monument, Budapest

Taken in the summer of 2002 near Budapest

On the southwestern outskirts of Budapest, there’s a park that collects many of the statues from the Communist era. These are statues that were in prominent locations during the Cold War, but were too historic to destroy. This, the Republic of Councils Monument, is one of the most impressive, and was at XIV. Dózsa György Utca (Felvonulási tér, near the City Park [Varosliget.]) 

At any rate, the Memento Park is where Communist art goes to be kitsch.
