In 1956, the communist government was overthrown, but the uprising was violently put down by the Red Army.
By definition the movement was an uprising, not a revolution, because its mainstream demands had no intention to overthrow or modify the communist constitutional order. There were representatives of radicals, like Cardinal Mindszenty, but they weren't influenial to the movement in general. On the other hand, the leader of the 1956 movement was the communist Imre Nagy.
End of communism
Communist rule in Hungary came to an end in 1989.
