With its height of 96 m (315 ft), it is one of the two tallest buildings in Budapest, along with Saint Stephen’s Basilica. The number 96 refers to the nation’s millennium, 1896, and the conquest of the later Kingdom of Hungary in 896
Museum of Terror - is a memorial to the victims of these regimes, including those detained, interrogated, tortured or killed. The building it self was used by the communists and therefore thousands of people were killed and tortured inside. Part of the exhibition takes visitors to the basement, where they can see examples of the cells that the ÁVH used to break the will of their prisoners.
Very sad, touching and emotional is the “shoe memorial” at the Danube promenade. The history about the Budapest Jews is very sad, because the Hungarian fascists, the members of the Arrow Cross Party, killed thousands of Jews during the siege of Budapest.
