One of the city's popular but more bizarre attractions is
Memento Park, containing the giant figures of the Communist era
that once filled the streets of Budapest. After the change in the
political system the monuments glorifying Communism were banished
into the exile of this outdoor museum and among the statues, busts
and monuments are the forms of Lenin, Marx and Engels, as well as
memorials to the Soviet Soldiers and the Communist Martyrs. This is
the only collection in the world from the time of Communist
politics. Some of the interesting souvenirs sold at the park are
cans of air from the 'last breath of socialism' and Stalin and
Lenin shaped candles.
