Wine, history & SPA
Hungary’s scenery is more gentle than striking. But you can’t say the same thing about the built environment across the land. Architecturally Hungary is a treasure trove, with everything from Roman ruins and medieval townhouses to baroque churches, neoclassical public buildings and art nouveau bathhouses and schools. And we’re not just talking about its capital, Budapest.
Hungary’s proud and often crowded capital city, Budapest is truly unique and endowed with a wealth of remarkable architecture and culture. Divided by the glorious Danube River (Duna), the city of Budapest boasts some spectacular natural scenery, including the westerly Buda Hills and the Great Plain, which lies directly east of the Danube itself. Much of Budapest dates back to the 19th century and retains a strong feel for this era, since it was at this time and during the city’s famous industrial boom that the majority of today’s city was actually built. The city actually comprises two main regions, that of Buda and Pest, which were operating as entirely independent cities some 150 years ago. There is so much to explore in Budapest from culture, history, culinary and traditions. The destination is great for every traveler, even for those who are spa lover as the original spas are located directly in the city.
