Come with us and indulge in the spice that is Budapest. Make memories you will remember for the rest of your life.
HungaryBeyond the at once stately and gritty capital of Budapest lie Hungary’s hidden treasures: Lake Balaton (favored by holidaymakers) and the thriving cities of Debrecen and Szeged, along with the enticing wine region of Eger and attractive old towns of Pécs, Sopron, and Kecskemét. There are about 300 natural thermal springs in Hungary, and a number of medicinal resorts and sanatoriums to match. Folk culture lives on in Hungary (embroidery, music, and dance in particular), and traditional food is a matter of national pride.
When in Debrecen, use your senses instead of just looking for the signposts. Look down ahead of you to see on what kind of planks the citizens walked the streets in days of old. Look up to the sky and marvel at the colourful facades of the merchants’ houses, built at the beginning of the previous century. Follow your nose to the pleasant smells from the busy Mediterranean squares and intimate cafés, or simply listen to your ears and let the charming music guide your steps.
Thousand years history, barokk environment, tasty wines, hospitality and colourful programs waiting for you in Eger. A city full of legends 130km far from Budapest.
Hungary has no marine coastline, but it does have the largest freshwater body in Central Europe, Lake Balaton. The lake has been popular since the Magyar tribes first galloped into the Carpathian Basin in 896, and it shows no signs of losing its appeal. A collection of resort towns and an interesting bicycle route ring the 77 km long lake. Hévíz-Balaton Airport is 20 km from Keszthely at the southern end of the lake. From there, you can hire a car or take a bus and explore some of the resorts.
