  • Series of steel chains that symbolize the Iron curtain. Nearby is another piece of the Berlin Wall and especially the House of Horors. Combined with all this the trouble.

  • This Iron Curtain is the artistic, and memorial representation of the border that divided Europe into two distinct zones at the end of the Second World War. Work, inaugurated on August 21, 2009. These are large rusty chains, still a little flexible and you can pull towards you. The words of the Iron Curtain, are cut from the base of the monument, in several languages. The side inscriptions are in English and Hungarian. On 2 May 1989, armed with simple claws and tongs, Hungarian border guards cut the barbed wire and electrical wires that separated Hungary from Austria, to the east of the west, close to the village of Fertakos.
