  • Really nice autumnal Park with subtle castle vibes. Not crowded. Very accessible from the underground, public toilets nearby (with a charge) and ice skating rink too. We didn't realise it was close...

  • Not far from heros square is this run down castle, somehow reminds of Camelot although it’s not an amusement park maybe because there was a festival at the time. It’s definitely in need of TLC with...

  • 1 Euro to get into the higher tower with a tour! The view is beautiful as well. Nice grounds to walk around and see other things. Wear good walking shoes. This location is not central so plan to spend time getting there (40 min from old city)
  • Vajdahunyad castle gives home for many different shows / exposures time to time which are worth to visit. Although you can't visit the entire castle you can walk through its awesome yard, sit down the shore of its tiny lake which are a very relaxing timepiece.
