Travel to Hungary

Hungary might not be the largest country you may decide to visit this year, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a huge amount of opportunities to discover. It’s a landlocked country, but one that features a culture that is truly influenced by no one else. The largest lake in Europe can be found within its borders, there are thousands of thermal springs to enjoy, and there’s the fact that relaxation is a top priority to the Hungarian way of life.

It is a land that is filled with rolling fields, including the largest grasslands on the continent. Caves dot the landscape, offering unique ways to explore the area, while still being able to enjoy the urban culture in cities like Budapest. Art and music are taken seriously here and you’ll find the museums dedicated to each make for a thrilling adventure.

The culinary opportunities in Hungary are also quite unique. The flavors are spicy, rich, and rustic in nature. Expect to have many dishes garnished with paprika and onions. Cut the richness of local dishes with a bottle of wine produced in Tokaj or Eger to round out the perfect experience.

Although Hungary is a country that strives to keep their traditions alive, it is not a nation that is living in the past. There are numerous options available to visitors to embrace this culture and enjoy their time away from the stresses of life. If you’re ready for a unique holiday, then the cities of Hungary have something to offer you.
