Hungary is a country of indescribable beauty, European abroad, unique in its spirit. The language is very complicated, the surnames precede the first names. Hungary has one of the largest mixtures of influences between European countries, and these influences materialize more clearly in the unmissable Budapest, capital of wide streets of Germanic inspiration, Turkish thermal baths, Viennese cafes and Renaissance architecture. Between Buda, the historical district that houses the castle, and Pest, with palace-like buildings that stand side by side to lose sight of, runs the main artery of the city, the river Danube, where tourists and locals mingle to enjoy a good tokaj wine during the sunset. It is very easy to move around the country, despite the language that is practically intelligible (Hungarian is a distant cousin of Finnish and has very few words of Latin or Greek origin). Hungarian hospitality will also leave its mark, whether in a metropolis such as Budapest or in the many small towns that make up Lake Balaton, where foreigners are few and the chance to dig deep into Hungarian culture and cuisine is enormous.
Specialties from Hungary
