I can understand, it's a place linked with WW2, so it's a kind of mystical place, but it is definitely not TOP 10 Budapest places

I had read about this monument and felt compelled to see it. If you are at Parliament facing the Danube, turn left and head for the knot of people up ahead. Sometimes it is the small things that invoke the most intense feelings. This site pays tribute to the victims of WWII and its aftermath, when men, women and children... More

I wasn't too sure at first what the point of this sight was. There are several plaques in the walkway in different languages explaining that is a memorial to a number of people who were shot and killed into the Danube river near the end of WWII.

This small tribute to the men and women who were murdered in WW2, by the Hungarian Nazis. Be prepared to be shocked by the symbolism of a missing generation. But above all REMEMBER how it could still be, if good men do nothing.

This is not far from the parliament building and is a very stark reminder of the past. It is so worth seeing and you will have your own thoughts on the matter.

This place is very interesting and dramatic. Some people cry in this place. This is holokostic memorial monument. It includes iron women or men shoes. These shoes are shown that killed in Budapest during World War II. Generally these people are jewish.

Worth a wander past but doesn't take long to see. Read up on it beforehand as there is no information at the site.

This was disturbing and very moving. As the lights came on across the city one cannot imagine the horror. Go and reflect on how lucky you are.

The Hungarian Nazis, not the Germans, took local Jewish people from their homes, lined them up on the banks of the Danube and shot them in the back of thier necks so they fell into the river which bore the bodies away. It must have been red with their life blood. The memorial is of metal copies of the shoes... More

We visited in a very cold morning, walking along the Danube we were looking out for the shoes, having read briefly about this as we approached and could see the display in the distance, the chills set in. Thinking about the families either escaping or being captured and executed in such a manner, not only here but in many cases... More

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
