Hungary is a Central European country which offers many diverse destinations for a number of holidays. Bordering with seven different nations, including Austria and Croatia, the country is understandably a mix of vibrant culture. The capital city of Budapest is one of the most visited in Europe and it offers great nightlife, indulgent food, and incredible architecture.
A European crossroads, Hungary benefits from a mix of unique cultures that can be found across the nations it borders. Combining traditional architecture and a rich history with modern bars and restaurants, make it an ideal place to visit whether you’re a history fan or culture vulture. There are even numerous destinations within the country where these two things are dished out in equal doses, and nowhere is this better exemplified than in Budapest.
Originally existing as the two cities of Buda and Pest, separated by the mighty Danube River, the Hungarian capital has developed into a vivacious metropolis. A city where romance and history are beautifully complemented by modern architectural additions to the city. Visit the imposing 13th century Buda Castle, explore the museums along Andrassy Avenue, relax in one of the popular thermal spas that abound the city and tuck into delicious cakes at the majestic Alexandra Bookstore Café. With such a keen eye on combining historical elements with modern city life, some of the city's most interesting architectural properties have been converted into pubs and bars. With many different versions offering a different speed of nightlife, you'll be sure to find one that suits you, from the very first one established Szimpla Kert, to the ramshackle garden bar Racskert. And with all that, you’ve only really scratched the surface of amazing things to do, see and taste in breathtaking Budapest.
Other places of interest in Hungary are the cities of Debrecen, a cultural centre with a thriving university scene, and Szeged, the country’s sunniest city which sits on the banks of the River Tisza. Away from these cities, you’ll find mountain ranges, beautiful caves, historic towns, and Lake Balaton, the largest lake in the country.
