Beautiful Building

This is a beautiful building, situated at the rear of Hero's Square. We did not go in the building but walked through the nice gardens.

I really enjoyed walking around this castle of so many types of architecture. The grounds were lovely. Unfortunately the basin was empty and undergoing some type of work.

We spent the afternoon at this castle which coincided with a market and also an open air concert on the grassed areas to the side. It was busy with many stalls and activities which added to the atmosphere and really helped to make this castle special. However, it didn't really need any assistance and this is a truly wonderful and... More

This Castle is located in a natural (green) environment in the heart of the city (Városliget). The building is beautiful as the enviroment.

The Vajdahunyadvar and the whole area is worth seeing - both in the day light and at night. Simply amazing.

This castle is more a collection of different buildings all in different styles. Purists will find it distracting or haphazard, I liked the chaotic mix-mash of styles and periods. All set in the beautiful and calm surroundings of Varosziglet. Early in the year the ponds are still drained and the trees are bare, so maybe better visited in early Spring.

The complex consists of several buildings, designed in different styles. Very non-standard solution! But it turned out very beautifully. It is necessary to make a wish before the statue of a monk, they promise that it will be fulfilled!

There are so may quirky sides to this collection of buildings it looks great I would rather look on this building than Buckingham Place which is featureless in comparison, set in a nice parka and 2 mins walk from Heroes square, do not miss

Sure you won't miss this wonderful piece of art, history and architecture when you visit Budapest because it is situated right behind the famous Heroes's Square (Hösök Tere).... and it is free! Whatever you plan, wherever you go, make your way into this place and make sure you have your suitable camera lenses with you. You'll be fascinated looking up... More

Beautiful architectural gem! We were there on a Monday and weren't able to access many of the buildings. Still lovely to see, but suggest not going on Monday when they are closed. (many museums are)
