This park was one of the highlights of our Budapest visit. Large park. immaculately kept. Long tree lined walks and open areas. Beautiful Water Fountains set to music. Shady areas for hot day and lots of planted flowers. A beautiful and tranquil place.

Margaret Island it's a good place if you want to spend a day with your family. Perfect place for a picnic, for outdoor activities. It's a green oasis in the middle of the city.

Lovely spot for picnics and recreation in the middle of the Danube almost opposite the Parliament Building. Alternatively you can walk there by taking the bridge and walking down a long flight of stairs. Nice flowers.
