The beautiful city of Budapest



With its baroque cities, rural villages and water towns, Hungary managed to establish harmony between nature, tradition, culture and history. Start your visit to Budapest, the vibrant city of colours. Make a stop at one of the local bars or restaurants to enjoy a unique atmosphere and sip on strong local wine. As you move away from the capital, you will have the choice between resorts on lakes or hiking trails in the heart of the magnificent landscape of the Mátra and Zemplén mountains. Birdwatchers will be delighted when practicing their hobby, while horseback enthusiasts will slowly enjoy the Hortobágy area. On the Tisza river, the canoe is commonly practiced. After a busy day, take some time and relax in one of the country’s spas.
