Hungary is where you’ll enjoy the luxury and culture of Western Europe at about half the cost! Small wonder than that it is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the region. Although it shares its borders with seven countries namely, the Slovak Republic, Ukraine, Romania, Croatia, Serbia, Austria and Slovenia, Hungary has managed to retain its unique language and customs.
To its visitors, the country offers world class thermal spas, fine wines, and a lively arts, cafe and music scene. In addition, it’s blessed with a breathtaking landscape and an interetsing history. There are few places in the world where one finds 2000-year-old Roman ruins existing alongside 400-year-old Turkish monuments.
Hungary brags one of the world's most beautiful capital cities- Budapest, the "Pearl of the Danube", whose wonderful panorama is on UNESCO's World Heritage list. The city is made up of two parts - Buda, the older, more graceful and cobbled part, and Pest, the commercial center. On a visit, you can browse the remains of the old city, and furnishings, glass and ceramics from the 15th century at the Historical Museum of Budapest. The Pest side is home to the Parliament and the Hungarian National Museum, containing such treasures as the oldest skull yet found in Europe. What’s more, Budapest offers many nightclubs, bars and discos where you can drink and dance until sunrise.
