Before leaving to Budapest, Korea was already getting close to winter. However, this peaceful park, located in Northeastern part of Budapest, made me to feel like sting being in Autumn. I recommend to walk around here before heading to the spa.

Just behind the monument in Heroes' Square, cross over the bridge and on your right is the park. Actually both sides of the street is all park area. The famous bath house on your left and the Vajdahunyad Castle on your right. In September the trees were all full, plenty of grassy area and flowers and shrubs throughout. The area... More

Such a beautiful park, especially during this time of year. All the trees look amazing and it's incredibly scenic.

Nice, big park adjacent to the Heroes square. Couple of mini lakes, much things to see and a great nature makes it truly a gem and a perfect place to relax and unwind.

Rest in peace one of the coolest retro places that have survived corporations and crazy new digital world for such a long time but sadly not any more. I will remember great fun moments from Vidam park and regret that my children won't get to go there too.

The Zoo is also a part of the park, but you can also find a lot of beautiful buildings that contain museums, as well as a famous bath (a part... More

As others have already mentioned, the park was "merged" with the Zoo (Buy a zoo ticket and get free entrance, not free rides) or pay around 600ft for entry to this alone The wooden rollercoaster is excellent (note the poor employee that operates the brake in the middle for every ride), and kids over around 105cm are allowed on, which...
