  • 是在到英雄廣場的時候發現的。一眼被城堡的可愛外觀吸引,不知不覺走過去,雖無法進入仍可感受到那份小巧精緻的寧靜悠閒,附屬的小店有不少有趣的東西,和朋友在這兒選到了不錯的小禮物。坐落於公園中心,看著湖畔的人們,下次要來野餐才是... 
  • Plenty of life and events in a huge wonderful park. A should-go, if you feel like having a casual evening life! Note the metro has last passage at 23 more or less; pay attention to it, if you need to go to center city!
  • Nice castle in the middle of the park. Had a quick stroll in the morning. Looks great! Did not go through the museum however.
  • This castle was fun to see. It was a nice place to take pictures. We did not go into the museum, but we did pay a small fee to go up above the gate for a nice view.
  • It's worth a stop if you're going to Hősök tere.
  • I have only been to the castle, not inside the museums, but I enjoy just going for a walk there. Frequently visiting "my friend" Anonymous, the poet, or just wandering around the lake, making pictures or listening to music. Feels like walking into a fairytale in the middle of the city. Oh and ice-skating is just next door during winter.
