I was surprised by the animation presented by the park and how big it is, ideal for lounging on the lawn or having a beer by the lake.

Whether you want to enjoy the view of the Vajdahunyad Castle, take a boat trip in the small lake or visit the thermal spa or the zoo - the park has a lot to offer.
A real surprise. We had been told that the park was very beautiful, but there was so much more to it. The castle by the lake was spectacular as was the museum next to it. Before even getting into the park, you had to go through the Heroes Square with its stunning bronze statues a d the near art gallery. All in all we were glad we visited. I would highly recommend it. If you have kids, there is also a boating lake and a huge wooded park.
A silent, calm and beautiful place to visit. The castle and the lake are magnificent. In the summertime, a good place to escape to read a book, have a picnic, etc. In the wintertime, the same lake is an ice skating rink which is so unique. Highly recommended.
