The park is dominated by the Vajdahunyad Castle - originally built for the 1896 millennium celebrations - which represents every style of Hungarian architecture. In summer, there is a lake for boating, which in winter is turned into a huge and very popular skating rink. It also houses the Museum of Agriculture, the Budapest Zoo & Botanical Garden, the Szechenyi Baths and a statue of George Washington. This was erected to thank America for taking in so many Hungarian immigrants in the early twentieth century. On Saturdays and Sundays, a flea market runs from 8a to 2p.
Unique place and the atmosphere is very special. The castle is the main attraction, but walking around the area has a special romantic mood in Autumn, when the leaves were reddish that has fallen to the grounds and the 'crisp' sound it makes when you stepped on them is...simply romantic :)
Every time I am in Budapest, I make it a point to visit this area.

Heros Sqare is a place to go if you want a lot of history regarding Hungary. All major kings have statues with detailed likenesses in an open plaza environment.
Another major benefit is the Fine Arts museums (2) that flank both edges of the plaza and entrance fees are nominal to view all of the great Eurpoean masters of all periods.
A stroll through the city park can take several hours and there are many attractions inside the castle grounds. Lunch on the lake is a must. Try the goulash soup - it iws superb. The Hngarian people are easy to get along with even thoiugh the language is IMPOSSIBLE to learn (more than a few words) but it really isn't needed much. Most displays have English translations. I have been here in all seasons and I recommend autumn as the best time for temperature and seeing the trees change colors.

Personally, I think the City Park is very nice and I love to take long walks there :)
It is very good when you have a dog and/or when you have a special someone to take a romantic walk.
There are nice and cozy athmosphere with the lovely dark trees. It feels like the trees caress each other above your head and you feel safe no matter who you are and where you came from.
