Step into an illuminated Christmas Wonderland at Lumina Park's new exhibition

Christmas has officially landed – at least at Római Baths, where Lumina Park has just unveiled its second exhibition. If you could do with some festive cheer, this is the place to be: stroll through a million fairy lights, spot reindeer, enjoy a carousel ride, and say hello to elves at their workshop or even Santa Claus himself.

Lumina Park's dazzling light exhibition recently illuminated Margaret Island with Budapest-themed installations. While you can admire (and take selfies with) iconic landmarks like the Parliament, Chain Bridge, or Tram 2 at the Palatinus Open-Air Baths, a little further away, a bonus exhibition showers you with Christmas spirits.

Lumina's second venue, located at Római Baths (take bus 34 from Göncz Árpád városközpont), boasts all the festive essentials. At Lumina Christmas, you can explore the gift factory where diligent elves craft presents, witness the enchanting ice world and northern lights, embark on a reindeer trail, send a letter to Santa at the Christmas Post Office, and even meet the man himself. Take a peek through our photos!
