Why Hungary?

BECAUSE citing the city's unparalleled panorama, UNESCO declared Budapest, Hungary's capital, 'the Pearl of the Danube', a World Heritage site, for no-one denies that it is one of the most beautifully situated cities in the world.

BECAUSE according to the data of ICCA (International Congress and Convention Association) Budapest is the 8th most popular conference city of the world thanks to its geographical location, world famous academic life and quality conference services.

BECAUSE after Iceland, Hungary has the world's largest reserve of surface thermal water: hundreds of springs help thousands in recovering.

BECAUSE Lake Balaton, Central Europe's largest lake, is a favourite get-away for families with young children, fans of yachting and lovers of the beach.

BECAUSE according to the surveys of WTO (World Tourism Organisation) the cultural motivation of travellers had a great importance in the last few years in tourism. The richness of Hungary’s cultural heritage surpasses all expectations. Its diverse landscape, clean air, unspoilt beauty, fresh water and often intriguing geographical features offer the perfect backdrop to an active holiday. There’s a rich spread of flora and fauna, and devotees of bird-watching and hunting can take part in wellorganised trips throughout the year.

BECAUSE there are clues all around in the country’s architecture. A single street can take you on a journey through several centuries. Roman ruins, medieval castles, Baroque palaces, Art-Nouveau mansions and cutting-edge contemporary buildings are waiting for you.

BECAUSE music enthusiasts should time their visit to one of several international cultural and music festivals. Lovers of opera and classical music are particularly well catered in the capital’s beautiful State Opera House by famous Hungarian and international artists.

BECAUSE gastronomy is a key ingredient of the country’s cultural experience. When eating in Hungary, don’t miss out on specialities such as goose liver, goulash soup, paprika chicken, spicy sausage, salami, pancakes. Hungarian wine has been acclaimed globally for many centuries. There are 22 wine regions in Hungary, and – in addition to restaurants and bars – you can take a taste in wine cellars, wine museums or at the vineyards themselves. Look out for Tokaj Aszú, which Louis XIV famously declared to be the ‘king of wines, wine of kings’. Pálinka – fiery fruit brandy – is one of Hungary’s national treasures.
