Situated in the very heart of Europe, Hungary is a nation of just over ten million people. The country has an extraordinary wealth of thermal spas, and a beautiful capital, Budapest.
In the outlying country, gorgeous Baroque towns stand alongside ancient castles and fortresses. Explore the Transdanubia region and visit Lake Balaton, one of central Europe's largest lakes (known as 'the Hungarian Sea').
Equally stunning are the thickly forested Northern Uplands, and the beguiling landscape of the vast Great Plain, not to mention some of the grandest stretches of the romantic Danube River.
A Budapest will give you a chance to experience this wonderful city that is split into two. On the east side of the River Danube there is the largely flat area of Pest and on the west-bank is the hillier region of Buda, both of which were united in 1873 to form the vibrant capital that exists today.
