Locked in Eastern Europe by seven different countries, it’s no wonder Hungary is a marvelous weave of tradition, modernity, and cultural twists around every corner. From one of Europe’s most cutting edge capitals to villages like time capsules, Hungary has a huge amount to explore.
Thanks to its position at the heart of the continent, Hungary has endured a tumultuous, fascinating history reflected in the rich variety of incredible architecture. Ancient ruins, magnificent baroque churches, Roman bathhouses, and elegant renaissance masterpieces make virtually all Hungary’s cities impossibly picturesque.
Get out into the countryside, and you’ll find lands where time has stood still, with picturesque villages carrying out centuries-old traditions. And, as the residents of these corners of Hungary will tell you, the old ways are still the best.
Old lessons and sacred traditions are evident in the legendary Maygar cuisine, as well as the infectious dance houses, where you can while away the night drinking vast quantities of beer to the sound of raucous folk music.
