Budapest - City Park & Beyond (Chapter)
This is the City Park & Beyond chapter from Lonely Planet’s Budapest guidebook.
The ‘green lung’ at northern Andrassy ut, City Park is Budapest’s largest park. Its main entrance, Heroes’ Square, is ringed by important museums and historic monuments. The streets fringing the park are paradise for fans of art nouveau (Secessionist) architecture.
- take the waters at the ‘wedding-cake’ Szechenyi Baths in Budapest’s sprawling City Park, which boasts some of the hottest thermal water of all the city’s spas and arguably its most waterlogged chess players
- enjoy the stunning architecture and the friendly residents of the Elephant House at Budapest Zoo
- restaurants & bars
- have a close call with one Great Master after another at the rich Museum of Fine Arts
Coverage includes: Neighbourhood Top Five, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Sleeping and Shopping.
