It was strange to walk across this square and suddenly find a realistic life-size statue of Ronald Reagan apparently striding towards me! memories of the end of the Cold War period, but definitely worth walking past this one.

An interesting statue featuring past USA president Ronald Reagan. If you know your history you can understand the meaning of the statue there. Otherwise a selfy-photo is just fine.

As I understand it, this statue of Reagan was erected after Reagan and the US government spoke out against Hungary’s oppression of the free press. The statue was erected to mollify Reagan, who believed in the 1st amendment and the importance of a free press.
