  • Perhaps the park was beautiful recently. But now almost half of the park is fenced and not available for walks. Fountains do not work, although still very warm. Broken-coated tracks. Pond on 2/3 pumped out and filled with concrete (even two cars on the pond stood :)) in general a special repair, can by spring all this and come to a certain beauty but not now. To our regret. The zoo is good, cramped only to him. I think part of the park can be safely transferred to the zoo.

  • A large area including The Heroes Square was a civic square. Most tourists seemed to end up only in Heroes Square, but when they got out from the back side and crossed the bridge, it led to the Szecheni Hot Springs. It was a park with a lot of greenery and it was a place of relaxation for citizens.

  • A real surprise. We had been told that the park was very beautiful, but there was so much more to it. The castle by the lake was spectacular as was the museum next to it. Before even getting into the park, you had to go through the Heroes Square with its stunning bronze statues a d the near art gallery. All in all we were glad we visited. I would highly recommend it. If you have kids, there is also a boating lake and a huge wooded park.
  • A silent, calm and beautiful place to visit. The castle and the lake are magnificent. In the summertime, a good place to escape to read a book, have a picnic, etc. In the wintertime, the same lake is an ice skating rink which is so unique. Highly recommended.
