While you are in the area make sure to walk along the eternal Andrassy Boulevard with its magnificent architecture, as well as through the City Park. It features a zoo, an amusement park, lakes, trails and plenty of other diversions appropriate for the whole family. You might also use this time to dine in the sumptuous Gundel restaurant nearby.

It's home to Heroes Square (Hosok tere), with its monument to the 1956 Uprising and the Millenary Monument that depicts the Angel Gabriel offering Stephen the crown to the Kingdom of Hungary, surrounded by statues of the seven leaders of the original Magyar tribes.
The City Park also contains the Museum of Fine Arts, the Palace of Art, the City Zoo, the Szechyeni Bath, and the Municipal Great Circus. Also in the park is the Vajdahunyad Castle, located on an island in the lake. The park is full of playgrounds, sports fields, small gardens, and a manmade lake.
A word of warning for the prudish--even the not-so-fit lillt old men lie around the park sunbathing in very little clothing.
Outside the nearby Jak Chapel is a statue of a hooded monk called Anonymous, who chronicled the activities of the early Magyar tribe.
