  • After the changes that occurred in Hungary at the end of ' 80 and early ' 90 and the transition from socialism to capitalism from all squares and the streets were removed all monuments and landmarks that resemble the Soviet Union. Almost all of them, but some are still left. One of them is a monument to the red-haired ones who died in the fight against the fascist. The monument is located in the centre of the Rgada in the town square (Sabadsag ter). Spoemnik is relatively small, in the form of the obelisk, but preserved and rebuilt. The square itself is green and beautiful, surrounded by pales from the beginning of the XX century, where many significant state institutions of Hungary are located.

  • After World War II, several monuments to Soviet soldiers who died in the battles for the liberation of the city were erected in Budapest. The obelisk on Freedom Square is the most important of them and one of the few that have survived to date. Until 1958, there was a soldier's burial under it, but the remains of the fallen were transferred to the cemetery of Kerepeshi, where there is another monument to Soviet soldiers, but smaller. Not far from the monument on Freedom Square in 2011, a statue of Ronald Reagan was erected, which seems to be going in the direction of the monument to soviet soldiers. Probably wants to bow to the heroes-liberators.

  • Pleasant park with an interesting soviet memorial. Probably one the very few public places still in Budapest with Soviet Union emblem.
  • It was great, I just missed some Kalashnikov shop.
