In the middle of the Danube, this island is home to some great gardens and natural spaces. If you are feeling energetic, you can run round the island on the purpose built track, but for the rest of us, then a stroll is more than adequate to appreciate what is there.

If you plan a trip to Budapest, this is the place you have to visit.There are two bridges across Danube on the edges of the island, so you can go there on foot, but I recommend that you take a boat ride. The island is beautiful. You can enjoy walking, and then you can rest in beautiful gardens or enjoy watching the musical fountains.

I had taken a boat ride on the Danube and saw this Island, The boat stopped at the island and I decided to get off and explore.

What a cool place, I hadnt heard of it but saw the castle ruins on the island. We met some locals there who told us about this water fountain synchonized to Music. It was really nice. Defiantly a surprise and thanks to those anonymous Locals who told us about it.

There is also a petting zoo, Pony rides and a flower garden on the island
