A charming gent with an umbrella invited us to take a few steps underground to visit this fascinating memorial. A darkened tunnel lit by displays and floor lights led us through the dark days of October 1956. So many people died and so many people fled. 2500 Hungarians lost their lives and 200,000 moved away.
Close to the Parliament building it is easy to find and a welcome respite from autumnal rain with the added bonus of free entry. Our concierge at the Aria Hotel filled in the gaps of our knowledge about Hungarian history.
