If you are looking to change things up and take a break from a full day of sightseeing, The City Park is perhaps the best place to do so when in Budapest. Enter the park through Heroes Square, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site and both the Museum of Fine Art and Palace of Arts buildings are also nearby. The Park is important historically as it was the site of the 1896 Millennium celebrations in Hungary. The Park officially came into existence in the early 19 th century and has since become a place where residents of Budapest have gathered for years. This Park serves as a central location, of which many of the important sites of Budapest are located nearby.

Within Heroes Square there is the Millennium Monument, which is a very important monument to the city. Around the Park you can easily spend a full day or two exploring the surrounding attractions. Some of the top attractions nearby include The Vajdahunyad Castle, The Széchenyi Medicinal Baths and Swimming Pool and The Gundal Restaurant, which is Hungary's most famous restaurant. The park itself is a great place to come and explore and people watching here is a favorite activity among many.

The Vajdahunyad Castle is a presence reigning over the park and also houses the Museum of Agriculture and The Budapest Zoo and nearby is a lake that is great for boating. This lake is turned into an ice skating rink in the winter which makes this a truly magical place to come visit around the Holidays. During the summer months this is a fun place for visitors to come and take the boats out on the lake in this ideal setting, surrounded by beautiful buildings and natural scenery. Within the Szechenyi Baths, travelers can come and relax in the warm waters year round. At the baths there is a statue of George Washington which was constructed to thank the United States for welcoming Hungarian Immigrants into the United States in the early 20 th century.

Many travelers will come to the park to relax during the warmer months as a way to take a break from a long day of sightseeing. Planning a day out with a break here is a good idea and bringing along food for a picnic will provide a truly memorable experience here. This is an excellent place to be inspired as you are surrounded by such beauty and there are visitors from all over the world passing through creating a truly unique environment.

The Palace of Arts and Museum of Fine Arts are two attractions located here that can be explored within a few hours. The Museum of Terror and Yellow Underground attractions are also nearby. The Museum of Fine Arts was completed in 1906, designed by architects Albert Shickedanz and Fulop Herzog. Within the museum is a great diverse collection of art and this is definitely an attraction you should see if coming to the City Park. This is the top park in the city and a place you should come see when in Budapest.
