Hungary Information

 


Hungary is a country in Central Europe. Member of the European Union and Schengen. The country offers many diverse destinations: relatively low mountains in the north-west, the Great Plain in the east, lakes and rivers of all sorts (including Balaton - the largest lake in Central Europe), and many beautiful small villages and hidden gems of cities. Top this off with Hungary's great accessibility in the middle of Europe, a vivid culture and economy, and you get a destination absolutely not worth missing if you're in the region.

Hungary is one of the 15 most popular tourist destinations in the world, with a capital regarded as one of the most beautiful in the world. Despite its relatively small size, the country is home to numerous World Heritage Sites, UNESCO Biosphere reserves, the second largest thermal lake in the world (Lake Hévíz), the largest lake in Central Europe (Lake Balaton), and the largest natural grassland in Europe (Hortobágy). In terms of buildings, Hungary is home to the largest synagogue in Europe (Great Synagogue), the largest medicinal bath in Europe (Széchenyi Medicinal Bath), the third largest church in Europe (Esztergom Basilica), the second largest territorial abbey in the world (Pannonhalma Archabbey), the second largest Baroque castle in the world (Gödöllo), and the largest Early Christian Necropolis outside Italy (Pécs).





Cities



Budapest - the capital city of Hungary. With green filled parks full of charming pleasures, museums that will inspire, and a pulsating nightlife that is on par to its European counterparts, Budapest is one of Europe's most delightful and enjoyable cities. Consisting of two very different cities,Buda on the west bank of the Danube River and Pest on the east bank, Budapest offers travelers Viennese romanticism at an affordable price. However, Budapest is unique in its own right. Hungarians are proud of what this ancient capital has to offer and its contributions to European culture, especially in the field of music, a language one doesn't need to speak to appreciate.

Debrecen - the second largest city in the country. Debrecen was the cradle of Hungarian Calvinism. It is a city that has always cared deeply about it's independence and has always affirmed its desire for liberty. The city contains many historic buildings, particularly churches .

Eger - famous for its baroque buildings, castle and wines, especially Bull's Blood (Bikavér). A entry ticket to the castle includes a tour of the Underground Passageways. The tour will take you first to the Heroes' Hall, with a replica of the tomb of Istvan Dobo. The passages themselves contain several different examples of archeaological finds, as well as recreations of events from the Turkish seige (a cannon being fired, an underground explosion, and a makeshift motion detector that uses peas). The passages can only be visited by tour, which are available in English at an extra cost.

Esztergom - The first capital, the seat of Constitutional court and the Roman catholic Church of Hungary, home of the biggest church in Central Europe. Esztergom Basilica is the largest basilica in the country. It was in a church formerly built on the same spot that the Hungarian king Vajk was baptised and from then on known as Saint Stephen. Entrance to the basilica is free, though you can pay extra to visit the crypts, cupola, and the treasury.

Kecskemét - a town famous for its vibrant music scene, plum brandy, and Art Nouveau architecture. The city is well known for its secessionist architecture, museums, and for being the birthplace of composer Zoltan Kodály.

Miskolc - with the unique cave bath in Miskolc-Tapolca, the third largest city in the coutry. The city is surrounded by the beautiful Bükk Mountains. The Cave Bath is a unique experience to swim, splash, play and walk around in a large cave system, which has water temperatures from 20-36 Celsius (thermal water), and has warm, wet air inside even in the winter. The caves are around 150 meters long but naturally nothing is straight, and it's all quite dark (it's a cave, after all). The bath also has pools outside the cave. The Cave Bath is surrounded by a large park which has an artificial lake where you can row boats.

Nyíregyháza - a small city with a busy water resort, museum village, and annual autumn festival. Several water parks are available, due to the natural mineral springs in the area. Historic churches, museums and art galleries are also available.

Pécs - a pleasant cultural centre and university town. Pécs was first formed by the Romans. Historic sites in the town include an early Christian mausoleum, a Romanesque cathedral, St. Bartholomew church and Hungary’s first university, founded in 1367. Pécs also features a range of libraries and museums.

Székesfehérvár - the largest city and county seat of Fejér county, Hungary. Located roughly 60km southwest of Budapest, the city is considered Hungary's first, as this was the royal seat of King Szent István (also known as Saint Stephan). Though most of the medieval city was destroyed by the Turks, it was rebuilt to glory under Maria Theresa Habsburg. The city is also located in between Lake Velence and Lake Balaton, making it an ideal stop-off between the two.
