The Republic of Hungary is located in Central Europe, particularly in the Carpathian Basin, and is bordered by Austria and Slovakia, Serbia, Slovenia, Romania, Croatia and Ukraine. Hungary is unique in every way, especially in relation to its neighboring countries.
The home of acclaimed classical musician Franz Liszt, Hungary is also the site of the Danube River. Tourists enjoy seeing how the majestic river divides the capital, Budapest, into two. Places of interest include: Sopron, a quaint medieval city that opens to the breathtaking Lővér Hills; the Esztergom, which has been the center of Hungary’s Roman Catholic Church for 100 years now, and the site of the country’s major basilica; Visegrad, which offers a bird’s eye view of the Danube River and home to an interesting hilltop castle built during the medieval ages; Budapest, with all its vibrancy, and the taste of Hungarian culture and arts that it offers to tourists; and the hidden village of Hollókő, which is the treasure chest of Hungary’s folk traditions.
These are the must-see places, but a complete tour of Hungary should always include off-the-beaten-track destinations like the Tanya vilag in the Southern Plains, the ethnic attractions of the northeast, and the vineyards of the Villany Hills of South Transdanubia.
If you are trying to decide when to go to Hungary, consider the fact that Hungary has three climatic zones, so the weather may vary from region to region.
