A great hidden gem if you're exploring Gellert Hill. We stopped by on our way down from the Citadella. Very few people. It was unique - I loved seeing it. Great views nearby too!

Beautiful place that will bring you peace if you allow it. It's near the citadel, definitely worth a visit if you're in the neighbourhood.

It is a wonderful experience to feel the energy from this group of statues, found in a hillside park above Erzsabet Bridge. It’s especially beautiful at sunset, as the lights start to illuminate the city.
