Hungary has many beautiful places worth visiting, and we collected the best videos of them in this article to help you choose when you plan your trip to this country. Enjoy!
1. Lake Balaton
Being the largest lake in Central Europe, Lake Balaton is the perfect destination for everybody, not only for spending the summer holiday but also for having a good time in the winter, spring, or autumn. The mountainous region of the northern shore is known both for its historic character and as a major wine region, while the flat southern shore is known for its resort towns – Siófok, Hévíz, or Zamárdi. Festivals like Balaton Sound attract many Hungarians and foreign tourists as well, but there are many hidden places, too, where everybody can enjoy the natural beauties and the peace this region offers.
2. Danube Bend (Dunakanyar)
This geographic marvel was the centre of medieval Hungary, so it offers a lot of historical places and sights like Esztergom or Visegrád. But there are smaller towns and villages as well, where one can enjoy local cuisine and wines after, for example, a tiring tour in the neighbouring beautiful hills and forests.
Being the home of the Hungarian betyárs, the Hortobágy puszta is undoubtedly one of the most iconic landscapes of the country. There is the legendary Nine-arched Bridge, which is the longest road bridge in Hungary, and amazing restaurants like the Hortobágyi Csárda where you can taste the famous Hortobágy-style pancake. The Pastoral Museum introduces life at the plain and the profession of animal keeping, and you can even check some traditional Hungarian clothes. There is also a bird shelter and the Hortobágy Safari Park.
Tokaj is one of the most famous Hungarian wine regions and one of the seven larger wine regions of Hungary. Hegyalja means “foothills” in Hungarian, and this was the original name of the region. There are 28 charming villages, each having plenty of different types of wine and, of course, there is the Tokaji aszú wine, the world’s oldest botrytised wine.
5. Lake Fertő (Neusiedl)
This lake is the largest endorheic lake in Central Europe, straddling the Austrian–Hungarian border and covering 315 square kilometres. Surrounded by romantic small towns and villages both on the Austrian and the Hungarian side, the lake is the perfect destination for a summer holiday, a bike tour, or a memorable cultural adventure.
Hollókő is a Palóc (Hungarian ethnographic subgroup) village in Hungary and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Located in Nógrád county, approximately 91.1 kilometres northeast from Budapest, it presents how people of that region lived hundreds of years ago and keeps many traditions alive that visitors can only see here in Hungary today.
Being the capital of Hungary, Budapest offers many beauties worth visiting from the Parliament to the castle district or from its famous spas and restaurants to its cultural heritage sights.
