Hungary

Budapest is Hungary’s capital city. This fantastic city is divided in two by the Danube – with the older, graceful “Buda” on one side and the more commercial, art nouveau “Pest” on the other. Budapest contains the country’s best bars and clubs, and has been a long time haven for writers, artists and musicians.

Many other cities of the country are vibrant places with rich histories and stunning architecture.

Geographically, Hungary is characterized by its relatively low elevation and seemingly unending prairie landscapes. The highest point is Kékes (1,014 meters) in the Mátra Mountains. Two major rivers run through Hungary – the Tisza and the famous Danube. Central Europe’s largest freshwater lake – Lake Balaton – is also found in Hungary. Such is its extent that many people often refer to it as the “Hungarian Sea”. With 11 national parks and many protected areas, Hungary is a superb place to escape on a horse riding tour.
