    I love Budapest but didn’t realize how many great statues there are! I think my favorite is the shoes. Do you know the story behind it?

      They honor the people (mainly Budapest Jews) who were killed by fascist militiamen during World War II. They were ordered to take off their shoes before being shot at the edge of the water so that their bodies fell into the river and drifted away. It represents their shoes left behind on the bank.

      Horribly sad but a beautiful memorial.

    These are nice! I’m thinking about traveling to Budapest later this year. 🙂

      I would definitely recommend a visit. I was only there a week but completely fell in love with it. Am hoping to be able to return at some point this year
