Visited a few days ago and unfortunately some areas surrounding the statues are undergoing repairs. Nonetheless, the history behind the statues and what they represent was fascinating to learn.

My partner has been raving for days about this famous Budapest sign that lights up, she finally tracked it down on Google etc the other day to discover that it is in Heroes Square. So after walking 40 mins from our hotel to see this sign as well as the other gems in Heroes Square she was ridiculously disappointed when she realised they had removed it! It's the main reason why she wanted to attend, as well as the ice rink... Which apparently is only open during the winter! Oops! However, the famous spa and pools are there, a few museums, beautiful park walks, paddle boats and a castle. The parks were gorgeous and well looked after with spectacular views of the wonderful surroundings/buildings. The castle was an interesting walk around with a church inside that we paid 100 ft to get into (around 50p) which I don't mind! We also went on the paddle boats which was 2500 ft (around £7) for half hour. There's not a huge area that you can paddle around but it is good fun and you can capture some really nice pictures of the castle etc from the lake. The Thermal baths which we were both interested in going was extra though and quite extortionate in my opinion! It was 5000ft each for the day with a locker! We both thought it was going to be free so we decided not to explore in there. Other than that the rest of heroes square was very nice (for the free parts anyway!)

So, although this isn't the most exciting thing you'll do in Budapest, it is one of the things you have to do! I spent around 20/30mins here just taking in the scenery and just looking around in amazement. It's huge and very well kept. Its about a 2min walk from the metro, so its hard to miss when you come out of the station. its well worth a trip, even if you just take a couple of nice pictures whilst you're there.

The Hero's Square was built in 1896 and is one of the most imposing sights of Budapest. Interestingly, this is also the most crowded and photographed place of the city. Picturesque and impressive indeed.
