On our guided tours we introduce Memento Park and unveil confidential information, such as how did Stalin forget his boots in Budapest while he had never visited the city? Does Lenin have a hat in his hand if there’s one on his head? Can people pull down the same statue twice? What did Nikita Hruschev say on his visit to Csepel? Where was the Iron Curtain? Why did people refer to Hungary as the country of goulash- and refrigerator communism? How happy was the most cheerful barrack? Was Bambi refreshment made of paraffin? What did communist politicians think about boys with long hair? How many people fit in a Trabant?
We adjust the tour info to the age and interest of the group.

"We had absolutely great time- it was very informative few hours with excellent commentary and explanations , which sparked curiosity of the children and a very excited discussion for the rest of the day about freedom and democracy- in the light of the last few years, could not be more beneficial. I am so glad, places like yours exist- this part of history doesn’t get much coverage in Irish schools, yet it shaped most 20th century. Thank you."
