Communist Sculpture Park

Another one from Budapest. When Communism fell in Hungary, all the Communist statuary was pulled down. Rather than destroy them , thowever, they were stuck in a dusty park at the edge of Budapest for the delight of tourists.
It is delightful, at least for Americans who never had to actually live under Communism. While it is a tourist site, the presentation is pretty understated, as is the gift shop, which amounts to a few items in the window where you buy your entrance tickets (I'm still kicking myself for not buying the South Park inspired t-shirt they sold there).
I could go on about this park and how cool it was, but instead, here's a link to their website, full of pictures and info.
