Beautifully illuminated bridges, Turkish baths, thermal water springs, spas, gulyás (a meat and vegetable stew or soup), divine confectionary, and even cowboys can all be found in landlocked Hungary. As one of the oldest European countries, its famous University of Pécs dates back to 1367 and still serves as a significant education establishment today. Although surrounded by Austria, Croatia, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia and Ukraine, Hungarian is the official language and distinctly different from the other languages spoken in neighboring countries.

What is Hungary known for?

Must-see landmarks

As Hungary’s capital, Budapest is undoubtedly a destination that needs exploring. With Buda on the west bank of the River Danube and Pest on the east bank, Budapest became a unified city in 1873 and is a vibrant hub for business, design, art, culture and entertainment. Within Budapest’s Castle District, you will find the majestic Matthias Church, which is a great place to start your adventure. Steeped in a rich history, this 700-year-old building is both a church and a museum, that has seen numerous coronations and royal weddings. Adding to its beauty is the stunning view across the River Danube. 

The House of Parliament is another beautiful structure that enhances the Danube panorama. Here, it is possible to see the grandeur of the Main Staircase and the spectacular Hungarian Crown Jewels. If you have an appreciation for architecture, then the Budapest Opera House is a must, as one of the most beautiful Neo-Renaissance buildings in Europe. Cruising on the Danube and heading on to Gellért Hill will give you sweeping views of the city and surrounding stunning scenery.
