Hungary is a small landlocked country sharing its borders with seven neighbouring countries. Its cosmopolitan capital, Budapest offers the best in Eastern European culture. Most visitors will arrive in Budapest which is situated on a beautiful stretch of the Danube river. It is a city of culture and beauty.

Outside of the capital the plains, rolling hills and rivers, lakes and vineyards hold much to offer the Hungarian tourist. Hungary is best visited over the summer period, when the weather is warmer and the attractions are all open. The weather in spring and autumn can be very pleasant, but temperatures drop to around 20°F (9°C).

Must See in Hungary

The Danube Bend

The Danube river is the second longest in Europe after the Volga, flowing for 1,771 miles through nine different countries. Before reaching Budapest it is forced through a narrow twisting valley in the pretty Carpathian Basin, known as the Danube Bend. The cluster of towns on the bend offers an amazing collection of history, culture and architecture, particularly the small towns of Szentendre, Visegrád and Esztergom.


Budapest is a great city with a cultural sophistication that entices and enchants. Budapest is situayed both sides of the Danube river with grand historic buildings, regal bridges and graceful tree-lined boulevards, it is the elegant beauty and romantic atmosphere that has given Budapest Parisian status among the Eastern European countries.


Eger is one of the country's oldest cities and is full of Baroque architecture and grand buildings. The city has over 200 historical monuments, including Eger Castle, the Copf-style Lyceum with a magnificent frescoed library, the 14-sided, 128ft high minaret, a reminder of almost 100 years of Turkish rule, and the Archbishop's Cathedral containing the country's largest musical organ.

Dates for Your Diary

Budapest Autumn Festival

The Budapest Autumn Festival concentrates on contemporary arts, with a varied programme of music, dance, theatre, film, photography and computer-generated art. Performances and exhibitions take place in a number of venues throughout the city.

Vidám Park (Budapest Funfair)

For over 200 years (indeed, before it was even Budapest!), central Budapest has had a fairground. In 1950 the so-called English Park and the fairground were merged and Vidám Park was born. There are 50 major rides and attractions spread over six-and-a-half hectares of park landscape.

Mohács Carnival

This takes place from the Thursday before Ash Wednesday, the highlight of Hungary's biggest carnival week is the legendary parade, which occurs on the last Sunday before Lent. The streets of Mohács fill with Croation mummers: revellers in truly scary masks, covered in long pelts and waving torches.
