  • A cute park in Budapest, home to the Vajdahunyad castle, the Szechenyi baths and a zoo. It's nice for some walks and to visit the aforementioned attractions, and maybe stop for a quick bite, as all...

  • Varosliget is a great area to walk. Unfortunately, there have been many construction works going on in the park. Anyway, it is an impressive park to visit!

  • City Park is easily accessible from many directions. By public transport, the easiest way to get there  is via the Heroes’ square stop on metro line 1. As soon as you emerge from the station, you’ll know you’re in the right place.. City Park was created with this exact aim in mind. It was designed so that anyone in need of a quick break in an enchantingly romantic and gorgeous open space may be able to find just that at the drop of a hat. City Park has seen its strengths grow in the last 200 years. Its willows and plane trees, shaded walks, grand museums and buildings are sure to enchant visitors with a unique side of the Hungarian capital.
  • My place to chill, relax and have a bike tour with friends. At winter, the lake is half-frozen so people can enjoy skating. In summer it's even more fun, where you get to sit and watch the beautiful fountains with the lovely ducks and fishes in the lake. People go there by foot but bikes are welcome as there are dedicated routes all around the city.
