Lovely place, especially for joggers with a separate running track. Though right now they are still heavily try to get everything ready since it is still under construction.

not much to see here but if you want to run and enjoy the view, this is a good place to go. The exterior track was for running so it was not easy to do a causal stroll.

Visited late May 17 when sadly, the whole place still seemed to be one gigantic building site. Any sounds of nature were obliterated by construction machinery. When finished, it will no doubt be even better than what the guidebooks currently describe, (though seriously doubt the...More

Margaret Island
For Budapest, this island between the banks of the
Danube represents a green oasis, especially during
summer when its emerald spaces are much enjoyed by
both locals and tourists. The gardens here are very
picturesque; the flowers in full bloom give the
landscape a variety of hues; the fountains add an air
of freshness, making walks peaceful, joyful and
romantic. A leisurely stroll will uncover a variety of

sorry, don't know that
Can one walk to Margaret Island from Pest or must you use some sort of transport? Is it possible to walk from one end of the island to the other? What are the particulars for renting a bike here? It sounds like a lovely place to explore so wondering what options are available to do that. Thanks for a reply.
