Holidays to Hungary

Being entirely landlocked, Hungary presents travellers with some of Europe’s most breathtaking natural beauty. Aside from its areas of vast openness, the country has many hills and several very high mountains. Visitors can enjoy the Transdanubian Mountains in the west, the Alps in the east or the Carpathians in the northern region of the country.

There is much to see and do during your holidays to Hungary. Some of the most popular cities to visit include of course, Budapest. Once two cities, Budapest is an extremely historic place with more than 2,000 years worth of monuments on display. A walk through the streets of Budapest will have you absorbing the 19th century history that comes with this excellent city. The city itself is still comprised of two main regions, Buda and Pest, which are on opposite sides of the river.

If your holidays to Hungary include a stop in Budapest, you will be amazed at the wealth of culture and architecture that is present along every street. The natural beauty of the city, with the division of the Danube River, the Great Plain and the Buda Hills, will be sure to impress even the most seasoned traveller.

Families who are enjoying holidays in Hungary will want to stop at the Zoological Gardens, the Budapest Planetarium or the Vidam Amusement Park for a full day of adventure. There is always the option to enjoy a relaxing boat trip on the River Danube or the exciting cogwheel railway that takes passengers up the steep Castle Hill.

For local culture, there is the Hungarian State Opera House, or a peek at the Buda Castle. St. Stephen’s Basilica and the Hungarian parliament building are two of the city’s tallest buildings. For scenic photos, make your way to Gellert Hill or the Citadella. Budapest also boasts of having the largest amount of shopping centres of any city in all of Europe.

Gyor is one of the country’s largest industrial centres; however, there is still a lot there to please tourists. After Budapest and Sopron, Gyor has the highest amount of significant monuments and historical buildings in the country, dating back to the 17th century.

Szeded is by far, the most significant city in the country’s southern plain. For its status and size, this marvellous city is quite underrated when it comes to tourism. It is a city of year-round culture including concert halls, theatre performances and opera houses. It also has some of the best local eateries in all of Hungary.

Debrecen is Hungary’s second largest city and is filled with rich Hungarian history with historical buildings, various restaurants, local shopping and bars with lively music.

Climate

Hungary enjoys a rather stable continental climate, which consists of sunny hot summers with an average of more than 2,000 hours of sunshine. The winters are cool and damp and experience some snowfall. July and August are the warmest months with daily temperatures peaking at 32C / 90F.

Currency

A holiday in Hungary will require the use of Forints, which are the country’s currency.
