10. Leo of Lucerne

This lion is considered to be the  most sad monument of the world. This sculpture representing a lion hurt by an arrow and in almost human facial expression was sharpened in the rock at the beginning of the XIXth century. This relief is devoted to the Swiss guards who died during the attack of the Palace of Tile factories in 1792.

9. The shoes of the Promenade of the Danube, Hungary

In 1944-1945, the members of the Hungarian Nazi party pulled on thousands of persons on the Promenade of the Danube. To economise bullets, they had tied 50 or 60 persons together and pulled on the first one, which by falling took others in its fall. Before fusillade, they had made them take off the shoes to be able to sell them then.  In memory of dead on the edges of the river, 60 pairs of  iron shoes forged were put there.
