Budapest’s loveliest park runs between Margaret Bridge and Árpád Bridge for just about 2 kilometres. The green oasis in the heart of the city, is full of century-old trees, has a rose garden, and a Japanese Garden with thermal water lake and waterfall.
The kid's favourites here include the small Game Park, Hajós Alfréd Sports Swimming Pool (scene for top watersports competitions) and the Palatinus Strand Baths. Margaret Island Open-air Stage at the foot of the Water Tower attracts hundreds to its summer music and theatrical performances. Ruins of Dominican and Franciscan churches and monastery date back seven centuries; the oldest bell in Hungary still rings in the belfry of the Premonstratensian chapel. There are minibus tours in summer and four-wheeler bikes (bringóhintó) are also a good way for the whole family to explore the island.
