65 year-old Liberty statue of Budapest

You can see her from almost anywhere in Pest. Originally, she was the Soviet Liberation Monument and was guarded by a Soviet soldier from a lower pedestal. He, with a machine gun and a hammer-sickle flag is now in the Statue Park, together with Lenin and others. She could stay, since the 90′s we call her the Statue of Liberty. Watch how she was test-assembled.
