Park hosting the world's largest artficial ice surface
Hõsök tere is the front gate to the City Park (Városliget), Budapest’s main area for leisure. Laid out by French designer Nebbion, its amenities include a boating lake, an ice ring, the Széchenyi baths, the Zoo, the Vidám (Amusement) Park, the Transport Museum and Petõfi Csarnok concert hall.
The setting for the 1896 Magyar Millennium celebrations, the area has a theme-park feel that survives in the Disneyfied Vadjahunyad Castle, a structure that incorporates replica pieces of famous Hungarian castles from throughout history. The castle’s Transylvanian tower looms over the boating lake, and the baroque-style wing is home to the antiquated Agriculture Museum.
