City Park Budapest
Spend Some Time in the Beautiful City Park Budapest
Above and below you see the Castle of Vajdahunyad located in the city park of Budapest.
The castle, despite all appearances, was built in 1896, and is, in fact, a fantasy pastiche showcasing the architectural evolution through centuries and styles in Hungary. The castle is the home of several festivals, concerts and the exhibitions of the Hungarian Agricultural Museum. The structure features styles from the Middle Ages to the 18th century:
Romanesque, Gothic Renaissance, Baroque buildings, from the Romanesque church of the village Jak to the Baroque palace of Prince Paul Esterhazy I.( pulled from their website: You can visit that through the link at the bottom)
This public park is quite large, featuring the castle above, museums, several restaurants, a bathhouse, amusement park, wide open spaces, and dense patches of forest. It’s an amazing space that you can spend a full day wandering around if you have the time. You may even run into the statue below: Anonymous. It’s quite ominous and beautiful.
Below are a few images of some street art within the park. And below is pop-up beer garden inside the park.
We wandered a bit until we found it, but when we did it was super fun- there was a vendor selling hot snacks, and of course a bar with great beers, wines and mixed drinks. Tons of people just enjoying the weather and the park life.
You may just get caught up in a local’s ploy to make some change, but how can you say no to a photo op like this one 🙂
At the opening to the city park, you find heroes square and museum of fine arts. Hero’s square always seems to be hosting some sort of cultural event, from a child’s chorus to a beer garden. It’s an amazing place for the community to come together and enjoy their city.
