“Lovely island especially in Autumn!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

This was a wonderful island, you can get to from 'Y' Bridge. We also had a boat tour round it. There is a running track around the outside or you can take a stroll away around 1 hour or so. In Autumn it looks fantastic as the yellow/orange leaves have fallen!

“Don't bother in November.”

Went in early nov. Nothing was open. Trees were pretty and nice to escape the city,but don't expect to do anything besides take a stroll or run the great running path.

“Beautiful place to walk.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

This is a very peaceful oasis in a very busy and vibrant city. There is an olympic sized swimming pool where the residents of Budapest take time out during their very hot summers to cool off. Many outdoor cafes to sit and enjoy a glass of excellent Hungarian wine as you watch the world go by.
