Is Hungary already on your bucket list? If not, I bet it will be soon!

Delicious Food & Local Wines

Culinary traditions are embedded deeply into Hungarian culture. The best example is a piping hot bowl of goulash, a hearty stew full of meat and vegetables. Goulash can trace its origins back thousands of years to a soup made by Hungarian shepherds. It is only 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 and tastings that make Hungary an attractive destination for wine enthusiasts and couples.

Culture in Budapest (including folk culture)

With the charm of a small town, Budapest is a cultural center and offers all the amenities of a European capital. 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 strong, with many museums and local artisans keeping alive craft techniques passed down through generations.

Low prices

Hungary is a top destination for budget travelers, with Budapest ranking among the most budget-friendly holiday destinations in Europe. Popular among college students and backpackers, Hungary’s capital city offers many economical eats and even free admission to some attractions, including the Fisherman’s Bastion, a scenic viewing terrace located in the Buda Castle.

Filled with beautiful nature

The Hungarian countryside is a picturesque postcard, complete with rolling hills and idyllic farmhouses. Hortobágy National Park in eastern Hungary is a World Heritage Site located in a steppe environment. Habitat to cattle, sheep, horses, and a few hundred species of birds, unspoiled expanses like these are Hungary's claim to fame among
nature-lovers.

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 only a short drive to the nearby vineyards. Due to 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.

Thermal baths

Hungary draws in thousands of visitors each year with its thermal waters, and various thermal spas are located throughout the country. Besides providing bathers with a relaxing dip, thermal baths also possess many health benefits. They can minimize muscular pains, improve metabolism, and reduce stress -- not to mention all those essential minerals! Baths can be found in all locales, from Budapest's City Park (Széchenyi Baths) to the world’s second-largest thermal lake, situated in a volcanic crater (Hévíz Thermal Lake).
