Roam around Hungary and you’ll come across dreamy architecture, steaming thermal springs and quirky folk traditions that invoke curiousity. Take a dip in white-calcium hot springs while surrounded by bountiful nature at an open-air spa village, or journey elsewhere to immerse yourself in local culture and witness how the villagers of a certain locale practice traditions in their daily lives — even their dwellings have been built according to custom. Not forgetting the Tokaj region, which is a standout destination for wine lovers; designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the historic wine region is where the world’s oldest botrytized wine emerged.
Budapest, the attractive Hungarian capital, stands out as one of Europe’s most popular destinations. Private guided tours can take you on an exploration of Hungarian Art Nouveau architecture and on an authentic food hunt around the city to sample Hungarian-Jewish dishes. Rejuvenate yourself at the largest medicinal baths in Europe before visiting the mother of all ruin pubs — a bar converted from an abandoned building.
