  • Were in Budapest in late autumn-leaf, all riot of colors of autumn foliage. Park unreal beautiful, peace and quiet, if you are in the forest, very well-attended, it was not a lot of people, a couple of fotografirujushhiesja and in General a very soothing atmosphere.

  • It was so beautiful will all the autumn trees and leaves, I couldn't believe it. Just walking around is amazing! 
  • Amazing Park at the end of the square of the heroes. It is very large, with many possibilities to spend a day very pleasant, surrounded by vegetation and a castle, is an authentic lung of the city

  • This is a very nice park to cycle! Make sure you rent a bike somewhere and then cycle to this place to take in the greeneries and round the lake view! Cycling in budapest is a must do! very good experience indeed
  • Very big park right next to Heroes'square. Nice place to relax or to have a picnic. You can visit the Vajdahunyad castle or the Szechenyi thermal bath.
  • My day isn't complete without a couple of laps around Városliget. It's a great park, loved by locals and visitors alike. Just a few minutes walk from Oktogon, or of course take the metro to Mexikoi station. It will take you right there. There always seems to be a festival of some sort on in the park. Today it hosted 3 events simultaneously, with ease - the Budapest Half Marathon, The Beer Festival, and the Sürkemarha Fesztivál (the grey cattle festival :-)) Városliget and nearby Hősök tere (Heroes Square) are a must-do, while visiting Budapest.
  • A lovely large park in Budapest. Nice for a stroll, the amenities (an amazing spa, ice rink etc.) and to relax in a less bustling environment than the rest of the city.
  • I really enjoyed visiting this place during my holiday in Budapest. Although I didn't manage to see the entire park, I did manage to have a general walk along the central part and popped in to see the baths. I'd imagine that they'd be a great place to visit in summer!
