This park was near the place we stayed in and we liked it a lot! The fawn statue was very cute! And the dog statue was nice as well. Also there's a special track for walking barefoot, playground, botanical garden and even a bridge to hang ribbons with written wishes. Very beautiful.

Pannonia, the western part of Hungary is rich in Roman monuments. The Romans who had a high bathing culture in recognition of the healing power of the thermal lake settled in the area. The first real discovery was the Grave of the Roman soldier, that was found in 1925. Soon after that in 1931 also in Egregy District of Hévíz, at the dead and of Attila Street, behind the green colored Heart of Jesus church the remains of a big 45x23 meters stone building the"Villa Rustica" was found. The earlier coins that were also unearthed nearby suggesting, that the building was erected in the first half of the 1st century. Until the 5th century, the building served several purposes. Originally it was a traditional Roman bath, but in the 4th century, it became a Mithras shrine. Now only the base of the walls remained, but the eventful history of the building can be followed on the multilingual information boards.
Near the entrance, on a small square in a stylized gate, the Cerberus sculpture of Orr Lajos is guarding the tranquility of the location.
In the field of ruins, the footpaths are covered by paving-blocks, to ensure the safe transport. The garden is wheelchair accessible. To the delight of the younger visitors a beautiful, modern playground is on the site. A few steps away is a small museum shows the history of the area. For your convenience, there is also a hyper-super solar-powered toilet.

The watching dog in the gate is a master piece of art.
The walls of the ancient building surrounded by green arranged trees,and walking paths in between. On the other side of this park, there green grass surrounding the nearby church.. When we got there the museum was closed, it was late afternoon.

My wife as well as myself are greatly interested in ancient Roman history and wherever we travel we avail ourselves of every opportunity to visit local archaeological sites having to do with this subject. To our disappointment, the only thing to be found in the Roman Ruin Garden in Heviz. are several centimetres high remains of stone walls. The whole excavation area is only a few tens of square meters.
All in all, if you are not an expert in archaeology, think of spending your time allocated for sightseeing somewhere else.

We were the only people in the museum on the morning we visited. Reception was great and very informative - we enjoyed chatting with the young lady who was at the desk. While the ruins are not extensive, they are in a beautiful setting with a lovely garden and an easy walk from town.

First of all, we didn't visit the museum so this comment is only about the garden. The garden is pretty small. The centerpiece is a couple of small walls of a house from the Roman period with an explanation is various languages. Furthermore, there is a door from the Roman period. When you're already in the area, why not take a look. After all, the garden is free. But don't expect to spent a lot of time here.
