Why holiday in Hungary?
Hungary hosts ancient, fortified towns, elaborate buildings, colourful folk art, mountains, lakes, natural spas, plenty of culture and reasonable costs. Notable towns are: Budapest, Szentendre, Visegrad and Esztergom.
At the heart of Europe it’s effortless to get to and easy travel in, while food and drink are rich, satisfying and inexpensive, though not so great for the weight-conscious.
On the negative side, some locals make an effort to fleece tourists – especially taxi drivers and waiters – and the countryside is still suffering from some degree of poverty and environmental carelessness from the days when this was a communist satellite.
