Want some fresh air? Go up to this little spot on Rózsadomb (roses’ hill)! Want an extraordinary panoramic view over Budapest? Choose this park! And do you want to feel the spirit of the Hungarian freedom fighters? This is your place!
It is actually a little hill with a contemporary statue of a young boy, Péter Mansfeld, who was executed for taking part in the revolution against the Soviets in 1956. At the same time, do not expect busy roads, hordes of tourist or tones of roses and candles around.
I love so much the silent melancholy here, the fact it is graceful and quiet. This park is a perfect place for remembrance, but at the same time the panorama of the vigorous city calls you to look into the future.
You can reach Mansfeld Péter park by bus, however I would suggest you choose the Gül baba utca or the other winding streets; then you can take your time looking at the old-fashioned villas of this luxurious neighbourhood. And if you have already made the effort to climb up here, don’t miss the Turbe of Gül Baba either!
