About 10 days ago, preparing for an easy hike.We met with our friends in front of the Botanical Garden Vácrátót on Saturday.
The largest botanical garden in Hungary is home to 13,000 species of plants only 25 kilometres away from Budapest. The gardens was the brainchild of a sentimental earl, Sándor Vigyázó
who transformed the Vácrátót estate and its average-looking English garden. While wandering along the intimate trails under almost 200-year old trees, through fields filled with 2800 species of flowers, among rose and genarium collections, you’ll meet 62 types of nesting birds, 22 types of fish and 73 mollusk species inhabiting the garden and its waters.
We were walking in the garden is almost one and a half hours. Then we headed on foot to Veresegyház. The weather was very hot, so we rest next to a fishpond at the pub. :)
Two hours later we saw the city's church tower.
Veresegyház is town with almost 14,000 inhabitants 23 km from Budapest, in one of the valleys of Gödöllő hill-country. It is a settlement founded in Árpád´s age, first mentioned in documents in 1375. The Roman Catholic church was built in the 18th century, in the style of the age of Louis XVI. in France, with a Golgotha statue of baroque style in the garden. The village is also decorated with the statue called "Mother" made by the famous sculptor, Pál Kő. There are ponds suitable for bathing and angling in the neighbourhood of the village. Park of statues in the vicinity of the ponds with the works of the Japanese sculptor, Mitsui Sen. A warm-water medicinal bath awaits visitors during the whole year.

Sights of the village include the Bears´ and Wolves´ Home with 42 bears and 20 wolves, located in natural environment in Külső-Patak Street.
We looked for our girlfriend's house, there was already ready for a delicious goulash.
Until evening we talked and drank fine wines, then we build up the tents.
