Visitors entering Memento Park first see an original Trabant awaiting people to get in and pose with this legendary East German people’s car. The Trabant was a unique product of the Eastern part of torn Germany (the German Democratic Republic or GDR). It must be hard to believe, but the tiny vehicle, its body made of pressed fiber and plastic units, used to be the dream of many families living in a socialist block-country. Once you see a Trabant in motion, you won’t forget the droning and clinking sound of the engine, the typical smell and blue-whitish color of its exhaust.
