Land-locked Hungary is famous for its hot waters and thermal springs. First exploited by the Romans for medical reasons, the waters are now largely used for relaxation with spas and bathhouses a popular pastime. Check out the ornate dome and frescoed ceilings of Gellert Baths in Budapest or the outdoor pools at Szechenyi.
Hungary has endured a troubled past. First colonised by the nomadic Magyars in the ninth century, it has been invaded and occupied by various powers throughout history, each of them leaving their mark on its rich cultural heritage.
Its capital Budapest is made up of two very different areas, Buda & Pest, each located on opposite sides of the Danube. Buda is on the hill, atmospheric, historic and packed with neoclassical buildings whilst Pest is the sprawling commercial centre with art nouveau architecture. The two areas combine to provide a cultural centre, packed with music, art, literature and historical sites. Oh, and don’t forget the nightlife!
Outside the city and to the south west, you’ll find Lake Balaton, the largest body of freshwater in Central Europe. Popular with locals the lake has beautiful beaches and lively resorts.
