  • Very beautiful collection of extremely large horses and riders. I don’t remember seeing anything quite like it in my travels around the world. I also enjoyed the City Park. Lots of hard work going....  more

  • A magnificent plaza that marks the start of the museums and park lands in the city. We caught the metro to Hosek tere station which brings you up on to street level directly in front of the monument.....  more

  • The Heroes' Square is one of the most important landmarks in the Pest side of Budapest. Flanked by two national museums, it features the statues of the heroes that marked the complex history of Hungary since the arrival of the seven Magyar tribe leaders and the proclamation of Hungary as a Christian by King St. Stephen in the year 1,000. The colossal size of the statues is one of the most amazing aspects, as well as the nearby park with ample green areas and food kiosks
  • Thanks to Hungary, I got acquainted with history, monuments, places of interest of old fashioned traditional beautiful Hungary, country of distinct contrasts. I fell in love with national cuisine and hospitality of its people. I love you, HUNGARY
