Liliput adventures in the city

Budapest has several mini statues, all of them are the works of a Ukrainian sculptor, Mykhailo Kolodko. One of them – a mini tank – is opposite the Parliament building, near the remains of the old Kossuth Bridge (on Batthyány tér). It probably refers to the Soviet occupation and/or the intervention during the 1956 revolution. This is a form of guerilla art but these statues have been well-received by the public.
