Magyar Magyar


The geography of Hungary is extremely varied: from the Great Plain to Hortobágy, the foothills of the Alps, Lake Balaton, Lake Hévíz (the second-largest thermal lake in the world), the Bükk Mountains and caves, Hungary has it all in the Carpathian Basin.

Hortobágy National Park is the real and true ‘Hungarian puszta’, the oldest national park in the country. Lillafüred is one of the highest and the most picturesque parts of Miskolc, and the best mountain holiday resort.


You will definitely fall in love with the panorama of Badacsony and Lake Balaton when you sit by the grapevines and admire the view: truly an experience you will never forget.


Approaching the lavender fields in full bloom on the Tihany peninsula, while you pass by beautiful rows of grapevines with Lake Balaton in the background, is wonderfully romantic.

You can discover most of the unique Tapolca Lake Cave from a boat. Let’s face it: being underground is an extraordinary experience.
