The area of Hungary is barely 100,000 km2 and the language is spoken nowhere else. Their folk songs bear no resemblance to those of other nations, yet the Hungarian people have been living in the center of Europe for over 1,100 years. Despite the history of many tragic upheavals, the country boasts a heritage that attracts people from far and wide.
Budapest, Hungary’s capital has been declared by UNESCO, the “pearl of the Danube”, a World Heritage site. Some fall in love with the city at first sight, others are won over only after a longer period of discovery, but all agree that it is one of the most beautiful locations in the world.
After Iceland, Hungary has the world’s largest reserve of surface thermal water; hundreds of springs help thousands in recovering throughout the many medicinal spas in Budapest and around the country.
Lake Balaton, Central Europe’s largest lake, is a favorite get-away for families, fans of yachting and lovers of the beach.
Eger is one of the most beautiful Baroque cities in Hungary and the center of the Eger-Tokaj wine region.
