    Plenty to do and see for nothing! We rented an electric car to drive around for the novelty. Which was relatively cheap. Must see the musical fountain.

    Soak your toes in the main fountain while you watch a lovely water show :)

    Really nice park! Rent a small car here, it's not really expensive and kina cool.P.S. Hopefully they'll finish ongoing renovation works ASAP.

    Wooded island in the middle of the Danube with running/walking tracks all around. Connected to both Buda & Pest by bridges at each end. Deer in small enclosure on the Pest side half way along island.

    You can take a long walk there, watch multimedia fountain show and just relax. Lack of restaurants of an island is a disadvantage. There are only food trucks and bars.
