This is a beautiful square, there's no explanation there of what you're seeing but if you have a guidebook or internet access you can easily pull up the information which explains all the different statues

if you know little about hungary/austrian history , this place is just a square. but the scenery is great with the park and castle and bathhouse closeby. a little study of hustory makes it even mire worth visiting.

We stopped by here on our way to the szechenyi thermal bath which is 2 minutes walk from here. Loved the columns and the statues of the mounted soldiers. It is very well maintained.

This is one of those really fine public spaces in a city where you really have to take 10 mins to enjoy. Especially well presented at night with the lighting

There's plenty of parking all around the city park nearby. It used to be free but now it's paying but it's not expensive.
