if you know little about hungary/austrian history , this place is just a square. but the scenery is great with the park and castle and bathhouse closeby. a little study of hustory makes it even mire worth visiting.

We stopped by here on our way to the szechenyi thermal bath which is 2 minutes walk from here. Loved the columns and the statues of the mounted soldiers. It is very well maintained.
