Budapest park to be named after Nelson Mandela
A park in Budapest’s south-western District 11 will be named after Nelson Mandela, under a decision by the city council taken on Wednesday.
The decision, however, requires approval by the district council, too.
Nobel Peace Prize winner Mandela (1918-2013) was the Republic of South-Africa’s first black president serving between 1994 and 1999.
Under another decision, a street in the northern District 3 will be named after Cardinal Stefan Wyszynski, Archbishop of Warsaw, who was well known for his principled stand against Nazism and Communism.
