Hungary is an exceptional country of culture. Not only do Hungarians protect their ancient buildings, but also wonderful historical traditions, and fascinating folklore.
Dramatic & Dynamic Budapest
Despite this, the country soars into the future, especially in amazing Budapest. Here, the extraordinary, historical architecture beautifully complements cutting-edge design and a thriving street art scene. So much is on offer in this dynamic city: fun eating spaces in converted factories, lively ruin bars, spectacular bridges, cute cobbled streets, and relaxing thermal baths. Spend some time by the mighty Danube River, which flows through the city, bringing with it ancient, hard-hitting stories. Such as, the powerful Jewish memorial ‘the shoes on the Danube bank’, which is a must-see on any trip to the captivating capital!
Head into the Hungarian countryside, and discover pleasant rolling mountains, fields of lavender, mammoth lakes, fantastic wine regions, and beautiful hill-top castles. The most enchanting thing about Hungary though is the ancient folk traditions, still protected in medieval towns and villages. Visit in spring, to see villagers dance happily through the streets in embroidered costumes of colorful flowers. Alternatively, visit in the winter for charming snowy scenes, and festivals complete with spooky carved masks. Top this all off with a steaming hot bowl of goulash, just another part of Hungarian culture that dates back to medieval times. Delicious!
