HUNGARY Tourism

Hungary lies in the Carpathian basin, slap-bang in the middle of Europe, and the Hungarians themselves will tell you that theirs is a Central (not Eastern) European nation- even though they trace their ancestry to beyond the Ural Mountains. A flat land dominated by the puszta (great plain), Hungary’s culture is anything but featureless. With a predilection for zesty paprika-infused cuisine and thermal baths (even during chilly winter days), traditions of horseback cowboy acrobatics and heel-clicking folk songs, back-to-front surname-first monikers and an inscrutable language, the Hungarians remain entirely distinct from any of their neighbours. From Budapest , to the sandy beaches of Lake Balaton, Turkish-influenced Pecs and Kiskunsag National Park, Hungary is elegant, romantic and a land of adventure.
