Hungary is a beautiful country in Central and Eastern Europe, situated between Austria, Romania, Slovakia, Ukraine and Croatia. Hungary has been home to Celts, Romans, Huns, Mongols and Ottomans throughout its diverse and rich history.

The largest and most visited city in Hungary is Budapest, the national capital filled with stunning architecture, vibrant markets, captivating parks and lively pubs. Here tourists can explore the Buda Castle District perched high upon castle hill or take a ride on one of the many public transportation options. From here you can reach outlying sights such as the Parliament House and other landmarks.

Another walled medieval city that is famous for its thermal baths and vibrant nightlife is Szentendre. Hot pools can be found at Pál-völgyi Cave, the Open-Air Ethnographic Museum features artefacts depicting Hungarian rural life, while galleries are plentiful throughout this picturesque city.

For those who love beautiful nature, Lake Balaton is a must-see. The lake provides ample opportunities to enjoy ice cream and beach activities or, for the more outgoing traveller, water skiing and bungee jumping. In the vicinity lie medieval villages with many opportunities to glimpse Hungarian craftsmanship in pottery making or wine-tasting excursions.

Travellers will find it charming that the countryside of Hungary still offers traditional cultural events such as Harvest celebrations or "Palinquot" (painted Easter eggs). These include folk dancing around the bonfire, singing along to cheerful songs or eating traditional dishes consisting of breads, sausages and potato pancakes.

Not to miss are the hundreds of churches located all through Hungary's countryside which provide an enticing experience as well as some of Hungary's best museums such as the Esztergom Basilica Museum which showcases Catholic art from the Baroque period.

Hungary has something to offer everyone - whether it be a relaxing holiday full of spa treatments or an energizing journey exploring ancient fortresses and delicious local cuisine. With its fascinating culture that unites the old world's charm with modernity, Hungary proves a worthy destination for all!
