I like this beautiful park very much. It’s 100 hectare, near Heroes’ Square and Zoo. There are lots of entertainment and relaxing facilities, museums, Vajdahunyad Castle. If you are tired of traffic and noise, you can hide and relax here. We walked there and saw the House of Music and Etnography Museum.

We walked up the beautifully lit road to Heroes Square, a stunning array of architecture and lovely at night. The ice rink looked wonderful and was bigger than a football pitch. A lovely place to spend time in the day or at night,

Beautiful lighted in the night and if you are lucky and the lake is frozen, you will see people ice skating!
Magnificent nature.

One of the many parks of Budapest ... with a very big area , just behind the Heroes square.
It is great in every season - we were there in the winter - in January 2020... but the place was also interesting at that period of the year too.
Beside the walkways there are also several other landmarks or points of interest in the area. To give just a short list:
- the Varosliget Ice Rink - that is only open in the winter.
- Vajdahunyad Castle
- Szechenyi Baths
- Restaurants are also to be found here ( Gundel, Robinson, etc.)
- Budapest Zoo.
- Museum of Transportation.
- Heroes Square is in close vicinity.
Visiting the park is free of charge and you can get there using public transportation also ... overall interesting if you care for a stroll. Go and enjoy.

Varosliget is by far one of Hungary's greatest attractions. It is located directly behind Hosok Ter (Heroes Square). Inside the park you will find an Agricultural museum, castle, restaurants, thermal pond, Ice skating rink, Szenchenyi mineral bath house, a small mineral water bar, youth center and acres of green grass and trees. I recommend visiting during the week. On weekends a lot of locals gather and bring their belongs to sell at a flea market and they also bring their load voices and beer. Otherwise this is a beautiful park to visit as well as the attractions within the park.

We were just walking back from the spa and stumbled upon this area. It truly is beautiful and there was something magical about being there at night.

This is a humongous park that is quite well put together. You have access to this Park through different locations. You could either use the Metro 1 (Hero's Squara or Sechenyi Furdo) or the bus or simply walk if you are closer to Hero's Square. There is a flee market (I believe) during the weekends. There are smaller parks inside Varosliget - some of them being just for Dogs. Certainly a lot of areas to explore and you would not be surprised by the history it carries. A large number of seating arrangements. A place where you could learn/practice your road signs (or your drivers test) was a nice surprise. You also have the Agriculture Museum at one corner of the park - just the view of it is mesmerising. I enjoyed for sure.

Located near Heroes Square, it's a nice area to visit. You can see the Museum of agriculture, a nice small chapel and you can also walk by the lake. Szechenyi spa, the Zoo, the Fun park are all in that area. Lots of things to do for fun.
