Heroes Square, City Park & Vajdahunyad Castle | Budapest Day 2

Caught up with Day 1?


After getting home just before sunrise last night, today was always going to be short. Still determined  to make the most out of it, we headed straight to Heroes Square from having lunch. This is one of the major squares and sites in Budapest, with statues of the historical Hungarian tribe leaders. It is headed by Millennium Monument, commemorating those lost in fighting for independence and freedom. It is quite a sight to behold and offers masses of open space for people to gather and learn about the history and meaning behind the square. Luckily for us, it seemed quiet when we arrived so the photoshoots began...







Just behind Heroes Square is City Park, home to many more historical landmarks and attractions. Having walked through here last night to get to the Sparty, it was amazing to see how much we missed and the beauty of our surroundings. We began with a walk around the very shallow lake, and a quick dip of the feet in there too. It really did feel like the right way to be spending a Sunday afternoon - a relaxed exploration, and after a mocktail each from one of the bars, we strolled around the grounds of Vajdahunyad Castle.


This one is fairy modern to most, built in 1896 to symbolise the 1000 year anniversary of the Hungarian's control and settlement in Europe in the year 895. It is just as picturesque however, and also known as one of the most romantic castles in Hungary. There was a wedding taking place as we walked in!





We couldn't think of a better way to recover from last night and enjoy a slow paced afternoon in the sun. This part of Budapest is so alluring and we can't wait to continue trekking the city tomorrow! We have a Segway tour planned so check back to see how we get on...
