Heaps of history
Positioned on the crossroads of Europe, Hungary has been influenced by its fair share of rulers and invaders over the centuries. And while there are traces of its heritage to be found all across the country, its capital city has a knockout symphony of architecture. Swathes of baroque, neoclassical and art nouveau detailing embellish Budapest’s streets beautifully.
Treat your taste buds
Loosen your belt, you’re in for a hearty time in Hungary. If you want to keep traditional, slurp down paprika-laced goulash and devour fluffy dumplings, all with a glass of full-bodied red wine. Got a sweet tooth? Café culture is thriving here so afternoons call for coffee and cake stops inside elegant tea rooms.
Bathe in bubbles
Sink back into the glorious bubbles of the thermal spas dotted throughout Hungary, thanks to the 1,500 mineral-rich springs nestled deep within the ground. Both in the countryside and the capital, you’ll find bath houses dedicated to unwinding in luxury. Swirling steam rises from hot outdoor pools, while indoor bathing comes with a mosaic-clad backdrop.
