About Hungary

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to Hungary entices travellers as a country like no other, with a unique language and culture transplanted from Central Asia more than a thousand years ago. Situated right at the heart of Europe, and often mistakenly classified as one of the Balkan countries alongside neighbours Romania, Serbia and Croatia, Hungary boasts a spectacular setting on the banks of the Danube and an enchanting Mitteleuropa vibe – coffee houses and Turkish baths, Habsburg splendours and baroque architecture. Budapest naturally attracts the bulk of visitors to Hungary. With Budapest’s spectacular buildings and hotels, few ever venture beyond the city, except perhaps for a day trip on the Danube Bend. Richly rewarded as they will be, ignoring Hungary’s other towns and regions is a huge mistake: the farmland of the Southern Plain, the beautiful, vineyard-covered Villany Hills in Transdanubia, the forested Northern Uplands bordering Ukraine, the historic town of Sopron so enticingly close to Vienna, the Turkish-flavoured town of Pecs, and the resorts of Lake Balaton – Hungary is a fantastic country to explore, standing at the crossroads of East and West.

Highlights of Hungary

Budapest, with its coffee houses and thermal baths, as well of course as its wonderful cobbled Old Town, and the mansions, palace and sheer grandiosity of Castle Hill; Sopron one of the most charming medieval cities in Europe, and a gateway to the stunning Lover Hills; Esztergom, seat of Roman Catholicism in Hungary, and site of the country’s most important basilica; Visegrad, with its hilltop medieval castle overlooking the Danube Bend; the baroque architecture and wine cellars of Eger; Hortobagy, a tiny village at the heart of Hungary’s puszta, the country’s original Wild West; the Great Plains cultural capital of Szeged, full of Art Nouveau masterpieces; the vineyards of Villany; Pecs, with its Turkish feel and fabulous museums and mosques, galleries and Roman tombs; Lake Balaton, full of water sports resorts; Heviz, Europe’s largest thermal lake; Sumeg, home to one of Hungary’s most imposing castles; Danube river cruises; Veszprem, with its perfectly preserved castle district.

Travel around Hungary

Public transport is well developed in Hungary, with efficient bus and, in many cities and towns, trolleybus services. Budapest, Szeged, Miskolc and Debrecen also have trams, and there's a three-line metro (underground or subway) system and a suburban railway known as the HÉV in the capital. Hungary's bus network is a good - and sometimes necessary - alternative to the trains, with train travel on the Great Plain in Southern Transdanubia normally involving several time-consuming changes.
