A boot ? Yep, a big one. I'll take you to the owner of it in the next post.

In the first post of this Pákozd series I went on and on about the history of the Hungarian Second Army and the Doni Kápolna honouring the men of that army that fell at the Russian river Don.

I didn't forget to mention however that that kápolna (chapel) was right outside a Military Remembrance Park that focusses on the 1848 and 1956 uprisings (one against the Austrian empire, one against the Soviet empire).

In this second post I'm taking you for a walk through that Katonai Emlékpark.
