Devastated by years of communist regime and the 90’s economic crisis, only recently has Hungary started to attract travelers venturing beyond the Buda castle in the capital city of Budapest and the banks of the Danube.

Go horseback-riding and bird-watching in Hortobágy, the largest natural grassland in Europe. Chill in Hévíz, the largest thermal lake if you’re into spa-culture or try the Ugrós, the ‘jumping dance’ with the Hungarians before sharing goulash and paprika-filled meals.

We’ve even included tips on how to stretch your dollars while visiting the country.
