With captivating landscapes, unique architecture and rich culture, Hungary has a wide range of activities, from exploring Buda Castle, to visiting the Budapest Opera House, hiking through the Balaton-Highlands National Park and relaxing in its healing waters.

Budapest, Hungary’s capital and largest city, is considered one of Europe’s most beautiful cities. Budapest is home to the world’s largest thermal water cave system as well as the world’s second largest synagogue and third largest Parliament building – the city’s top attraction.

Lake Balaton is Europe’s largest freshwater lake. It is also Hungary’s most popular summer resort. It’s so big it’s sometimes referred to as the “Hungarian Sea.” Ferries at Fonyod take passengers to Badacsony, a major wine-growing region. The north shore offers the historical bathing town of Balatonfured, the baroque Festetics Castle and more wineries,

Hortobagy National Park was established as Hungary’s first national park in 1973. It is the country’s largest protected area and Europe’s largest semi-natural grassland, with the alkaline steppe dating back 10,000 years. Expect to see wild horses.

Eger, northern Hungary’s second largest city, is famous for its magnificent baroque buildings. Hungary’s first Christian king founded the Episcopal cathedral, which remains an important religious center today. The cathedral was built on Castle Hill, with the city growing around it. The castle and basilica remain the city’s top sights, followed by the Valley of the Women, a series of wine cellars and restaurants built into surrounding hills.
