Gellért Hill

21st-century landscape description

If the whole area of Gellért Hill was flat, this UNESCO World Heritage Site would be the most visited and popular green area in the heart of Budapest, where friends have barbecue at the weekends or families jump in on the way home from kindergarten; a place where the elderly could possibly spend their active and passive recreation time, disabled people could get close to accessible nature, musicians would be jamming and people could start the day here with yoga. The only problem is that this hill, in the past 5-6 decades, became more like an enclosure, a dead exhibit only visited by tourists, than a lively urban space for local citizens.

Not much is missing, though.
