Hungary Overview

Nestled in the heart of Europe is one of the oldest countries on the continent: Hungary. A member of both Schengen and the European Union, the country is a melting-pot of diversity on more than just a cultural scale. From the plains of the eastern region to the mountains in the west, to the hundreds of snaking rivers and Balaton, the largest lake in Central Europe, to the towering majesty of Budapest herself, the country is a thriving hub of activities for travelers of all levels.

Hungary is often considered to be the best place for first-time visitors to Central and Eastern Europe. It is ranked as one of the top 15 tourist destinations on the planet, and contains multiple World Heritage sites and UNESCO Biosphere reserves, along with several of the largest buildings of its kind in Europe, from the third largest church, called Esztergome Basilica, to the second largest Baroque castle in the world, called Godollo.

Budapest is the most logical starting point for visitors. The city is a bustling hive of modernity with plenty of cafes, clubs, museums, ancient buildings, culture, and more. Accommodations are plentiful, and extremely modern. Transportation is similar, and the cuisine is divine. From here you can look out over the rest of the country and plan your trip, whether it’s heading out to the medieval castle at Visegrad, or the Lover Hills. If you are someone who enjoys getting off the beaten path, then the northeastern part of the country should be part of your itinerary. The area is the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains which lead into Romania and Ukraine, and snakes along the border of Hungary and Slovakia. Whether you take a day trip to Eger, or head into the wine country of Eger and Tokaj, there is plenty of ethnic diversity and wonderful sights, sounds, and flavors just waiting to be discovered. The highways are in good condition, and this is one of those countries that is just a downright pleasure to explore from the comforts of your car.
