Hungary boasts Baroque palaces; stunning churches; landscapes full of forests, lakes and wetlands; colourful folk traditions that are very much alive; hot springs and spas in more than 80 towns; and some of the finest vineyards of Eastern Europe. Watch eagles and spoonbills in the wild; ride a horse in the land of the Magyar equestrian warriors; drink Tokaji Azu dessert wine with strudel and relax in thermal waters. Straddling the Danube River, the graceful capital Budapest features grand boulevards, winding cobbled alleyways and inviting cafes. Pecs, in the south west, is possibly even more picturesque and is famous for its music and ballet. Lake Balaton in the west is something of a playground offering hiking, biking and watersports; while Hortobagy National Park in the east is renowned for its variety of bird life. Hungary offers an opportunity to explore some of the diverse highlights of Eastern Europe.
