Full of Cultural Riches
With a nod to the pomp and circumstance of Paris and Vienna, Hungary’s Budapest has a character all its own. Buda and Pest are divided by the mighty Danube,- with both sides holding great appeal with their monuments, elegant streets, wine taverns, coffee houses, and Turkish baths. Take a day trip from Budapest to Lake Balaton and explore the Hungarian countryside. Discover Tokaj, a region known for its wine traditions and dotted with charming towns and villages worth discovering. Go beyond strudel and goulash to taste Hungary’s long culinary traditions – take a tour of the Budapest Market Hall and taste the best local meats, cheeses and produce. Stop in Eger, a lovely baroque town with numerous thermal baths, the Nagy Templon Cathedral (the second largest in the country), and the picturesque street of Kossuth Lajos, lined with Rococo building ornamented with tilted iron balconies. Feel the mark of the Holy Roman Empire, the Ottomans, the Habsburgs, the Soviets, and others who have left an indelible influence on Hungary.
