Why You Should Travel to Hungary

Delicious Food & Local Wines

Hungarian culture is deep-rooted in its culinary traditions, and the best example of that is a piping hot bowl of Goulash, a hearty stew packed with meat and vegetables. Goulash can trace its origins back thousands of years to a soup made by Hungarian shepherds and is just one of Hungary’s nationally prized dishes. It's easy to find a locally grown wine to pair with your meal, as Hungary boasts seven wine-growing regions. The many vineyards offer tours complete with tastings that make Hungary an appealing destination for wine enthusiasts and couples.


Culture in Budapest (including folk culture)

Budapest is a hub of culture and offers all the amenities of a European capital city with the charm of a small town. Chic pubs and trendy stores dot the streets of this architectural wonderland. Everyone is sure to find something of interest. Hungary’s rich folk culture is still going strong, too, with many museums and local artisans keeping alive craft techniques that have been passed down through the generations.

Filled with beautiful nature

The Hungarian countryside is a picturesque postcard, complete with rolling hills and idyllic farmhouses.

In summer, Lake Balaton opens its waters to those wanting to soak in the sun or participate in water sports. The largest lake in the region, Balaton is just a short drive to the nearby vineyards. Because of its size, it offers a little something for everybody; the north shore provides a quiet family getaway, while the south shore is more well-known for its nightlife.

Besides providing bathers with a relaxing dip, thermal baths also possess numerous health benefits. They can minimize muscular pains, improve metabolism, and reduce stress not to mention all those essential minerals!
