Hungary is one of the many countries in eastern Europe that has experienced a surge in popularity recently and rightly so. It is a country that can offer stunning sight seeing in Budapest, the spa experience in Hévíz, a thermal lake, and many diverse activities such as hiking, cycling and horse riding in its rich countryside. Holiday apartments in Hungary are proving a very popular way to explore the country’s historic capital Budapest, where the impossibly wide Danube flows past the iconic Royal Palace and reminders of the country’s communist past meet its current status as a modern and forward thinking city.
Holiday in Hungary
A popular city-break destination, Budapest has much to offer the visitor with its romantic old town and the juxtaposed communist architecture in the industrial parts of town. The progressively thinking locals have made stylish bars, artistic restaurants and innovative shops and boutiques popular places to spend time. Make sure that your sightseeing includes Heroes’ Square, Fisherman’s Bastion and the Liberty Bridge or the Chain Bridge, which are two of eight dramatic bridges, which cross the Danube. You can also enjoy one of the many thermal baths that Hungary has become famous for in Budapest. Away from the city, Hungary is also home to the largest freshwater lake in Europe, Lake Balaton, which is often affectionately referred to as the “Hungarian Sea” among the landlocked Hungarians. This is also the country’s main wine producing region and look out for the local specialty of cherry wine made from Balaton cherries. The surrounding area is a national park popular with hikers and cyclists, as is the Puszta, Hungary’s vast stretch of green prairies where cowboys live and manage cattle like the Wild West. Other beautiful places to explore in Hungary include Eregszalok, famous for its Baroque architecture and Sopron, a medieval town in the west of Hungary.
