Sunday walk through Budapest. Heroes Square and its surroundings

IMG_1216-2.jpg
Sunday morning in Budapest was sunny, quiet and beautiful. The imperial architecture beautifully stood out along the famous Andrassy Avenue, and only the first inhabitants of the city began to go out to walk their pets. Never before in my life did I have such quick charges, at 11 am I took a ticket, and already at 10 am I flew out after spending half a day in Istanbul, after which I had problems with checking into a hotel and I had to spend the night one night in another hotel . But all this is minor compared to this beautiful morning ...
I was at the Heroes Square only once, at the very first, back in 2007. Since then, I have been to Budapest twice more, but did not look here. The square was decorated for the celebration of the millennium of Hungary in 1896. The monument, located in its center, is dedicated to the millennium of the transition of the Magyars through the Carpathians and is a high column, on top of which is the figure of the Archangel Gabriel on the globe with the crown of King Stephen and the Apostolic Cross

Two semicircular colonnades, located on the square behind the column of the Archangel Gabriel, is a monument to the heroes of Hungary. The length of each of the colonnades is 85 m. Bronze statues of representatives of the Arpad, who ruled the Hungarian dynasty, are installed between the columns from left to right.

A stone slab is installed next to the central pillar - a memorial to Hungarian soldiers who fell in world wars, where during the national holidays a guard of honor stands and flower-laying ceremonies take place. Today, apparently one of these days

There are also many beautiful buildings around the square. Despite the morning, buses with tourists, mostly strangely Chinese, already come here. Budapest is located in a popular route that includes cities such as Vienna, Prague, Krakow and Bratislava

We depart a little aside through the bridge. Right behind the Heroes Square is the famous Varoshliget Park.

In the Varoshliget park there are several artificial lakes, one of which towers the Vajdahunyad castle.The castle was built in honor of the celebration in 1896 of the 1000th anniversary of the birth of the Hungarians by the design of architect Ignaz Alpar, originally as a wooden decoration for the performance, and then immortalized in stone in 1904

Inside the castle is also an agricultural museum with a beautiful building interior.

And of course the famous Széchenyi Baths, opposite the Vajdahunyad Castle, is the largest bath complex in Budapest and Europe, although not as impressive as the lagoons in Iceland

Baths opened exactly before the First World War, in 1913
The supply of thermal water to the bathhouse at Varoshliget is provided by the well of St. Stephen II, which was commissioned in 1938, and cold water by six smaller wells.
