  • This is a site that does not get much attention, but really is a must see. When in Heroes' Square, you will be walking distance to it. Walk behind the monument and across the bridge. On the left is th...  more »
  • Lucked out with an orchid show here, but the exhibitions are (for adults probably) weird and wonderful. We had the whole first floor to ourselves. 
  • Definitely has its own charm, also due to its versatility: there are in fact in a single complex construction styles adopted in Hungary. Definitely worth a trip, also because it is located in a park, right behind Heroes ' square, and within walking distance of Szechenyi Thermal bath. It is surrounded by a pond but was empty when I visited.

  • Very beautiful place. I visited it during some kind of festival and there was people and shops everywhere, but still the building is superb.
  • Lovely old castle right next to the baths and the zoo. The museum inside isn't really worth the money, stick to looking from outside.
  • Wonderful architecture on the exterior of this beautiful castle. It is lit up nicely at night time.
  • Castle was not open when we visited. I expected to go in. It's worth seeing to take a picture, but don't plan to spend more than 30 minutes here.
  • Located near Hösök tere this castle has a beautiful architecture, there is also a museum that you can visit
