    It is another one of the beautiful sights around the Heroes square (that in my opinion is one of the most pleasent parts of Pest)...
    This historical building, that was raised at 1906 consists houndreds of paintings and a lot of exhibit, for example: Antique collection, Egyptian collection, Modern collection and more.
    The museum is opened every day (exept Mondays) between 10:00 to 18:00.

    While in the City Park (especially in bad weather as I had!), this formidable museum, housing Hungary's biggest collection of foreign art, is well worth a visit.
