It looks like you are in a fairytale when you are there. In the park, you can see different types of architecture. Beautiful place to take some pictures!

If you're near heroes square or Zoo take a short walk to see this fairytale castle. I got some lovely pictures there. To bad it's not an old castle. They built it in 1896 to present the architectural evolution over the centuries and styles in Hungary. But it's so beautiful you can easily imagine real princesses walking around=).

We had wanted to visit the ice rink but decided they were all too good for us so went to the castle instead, so lucky as there was a cheese and wine tasting event on......subsequently we had a great morning, be sure to check out the events they have on!!

Beautiful structure with a very nice garden. There is a unique sculpture of an anonymous writer. Check it out when you are there. Right opposite the museum entrance.

We came here on our tour of Budapest and I loved it! It is basically a park with some structures/facades that were originally built for the huge party that Budapest had in 1895. The castles are built in different styles like medieval and baroque and there are also churches and ther statues. The structures were originally built out of cardboard... More

This part of City Park is by far the most interesting bit. Around 15 different buildings all in one small area around the long lake. The buildings are really interesting and make for some great photos.

The castle is very near the Heroes Park. It is surrounded by water and as you enter the castle, the place looks very gothic. The castle is very interesting and the architecture is so spectacular. There are huge statues and the Statue of Anonymous in the castle court. It is very pretty to stroll around the castle grounds.

Behind the pompous Heroes' Monument lies a wonderful park with a beustiful castle. Although in October the park was in autumn colours and the water basins empty the place is absolutely beautiful. We didn't vidit the Agricultural Museum in the castle, but it seemed to be very popular for families with children.
