Heroes' Square - Hosok Tere, Budapest: 116 reviews and 242 photos

 
 

Andrassy ut ends in a flourish at Heroes Square, a collection of monuments that pompously celebrate some of Hungary's famous sons.
The square is a huge space flanked by the Museum of Fine Arts and the Palace of Arts (I didn't go to either).
Heroes Square is the end of Andrassy ut, but it is the entryway to the City Park, a huge open space (kind of like New York's Central Park) where you can walk barefoot through the grass, jog on quiet trails or rent a boat.
There is an enormous Baroque complex called the Szechenyi Baths, a zoo and the Castle of Vajdahunyad (a reproduction of a Transylvanian castle that was constructed for the Millenary Exhibition).

Address: end of Andrussy ut
Directions: Behind the Heroes Square
