Below you can read about the five most beautiful places in Hungary and their sights:

  1. Budapest

This time the capital opens a “box of treasures”. Budapest is historically one of the richest places in the world. It is located along the banks of the Danube River, and since the Stone Age, it has been inhabited by people. The river, along with the Buddha Castle, is part of UNESCO World Heritage. There is another advantage of the city – all the best attractions can be seen for free, so you can look at the remains of Roman, Turkish and Gothic styles and city sights such as Fishermen’s Fort or the Great Synagogue. Visit a place with touching “victim’s shoes” at the memorial located on the promenade along the Danube. You will see why people are returning to Budapest. Who knows, maybe you decide to stay for life.

  1. Eger 

Eger is a place where you can explore and visit the original Ottoman minaret or relax in the valley Beautiful Woman (Szépasszonyvölgy) where you can taste the famous  Bikavér red wine. Visit the nearby Aggtelek National Park, one of the most beautiful places in Hungary, great for those who like to enjoy the nature.

  1. Szeged 

Szeged, after Budapest, is probably the most favorite Hungarian city. Perhaps this is because of the main square that resembles a garden with beautiful benches and cafes along the promenade, but this may be due to the wonderful architecture of the Old Town palace. Szeged is also a popular student city with various cultural events available to both domestic and foreigners. The town lies on the Tisza River and has a thermal spa complex.

  1. Pecs

Pecs is a town with a mild climate, interesting past and museums  and that’s what makes it a desirable place for life in Hungary. It also has a highly-developed university. It is located on the plains between the Danube and the Drava, this area is perfect for viticulture and fruit growing, especially the cultivation of almonds. They say that Pecs is the most beautiful in the fall.

  1. Balaton Lake

Anyone who knows about Hungary is sure to hear about the famous Lake Balaton. Many consider it the “inner” Hungarian sea, where you will find old fortresses, vineyards, historic towns, and underwater caves. On the northern shore of the lake is the charming town of Szigliget, home to one of the largest castles in the country, and there is also a Benedictine monastery from the 13th century. This area is also known for the thermal baths of Héviz where the ancient Romans have bathed 2000 years ago.
