A Guide to the Land of Thermal Baths & Goulash-Why you should travel to Hungary.



When it comes to European travel, Hungary may not be the first country that comes to mind. However, this hidden gem of Central Europe has a lot to offer for travelers who are looking for history, culture, and unique experiences. Here are some reasons why you should consider adding Hungary to your travel bucket list.


Hungary boasts a wealth of cultural and natural treasures that will leave you enchanted and rejuvenated. From the majestic Danube River to the awe-inspiring Buda Castle, there is no shortage of picturesque sights to behold.


But why settle for an ordinary travel experience when you can indulge in luxury? Hungary offers an array of opulent experiences that will elevate your trip to the next level.


First, indulge in the country's world-renowned thermal baths. These natural hot springs have been cherished for centuries for their healing properties and offer a serene and indulgent way to relax and rejuvenate your body and soul. Take a dip in the iconic Széchenyi Baths or the elegant Gellért Baths and immerse yourself in the lavish surroundings.


Next, treat yourself to the culinary delights of Hungary. The country's rich and flavorful cuisine is a fusion of influences from its neighboring countries, resulting in a unique and delicious blend of flavors. Savor traditional dishes such as goulash, chimney cake, and paprika chicken, all of which can be enjoyed in upscale restaurants or on gourmet food tours. Don't forget the Dobos Cake.


As you explore Hungary's magnificent cities and charming towns, take advantage of the country's luxurious accommodations. Stay in a historic palace turned five-star hotel, such as the Four Seasons Hotel Gresham Palace Budapest, or a lavish boutique hotel, such as the Aria Hotel Budapest, which features a rooftop bar with stunning views of the city.


Finally, immerse yourself in Hungary's vibrant cultural scene. Attend an opera performance at the ornate Hungarian State Opera House or a classical music concert at the stunning Matthias Church. Take a private tour of the Hungarian Parliament building, visit the opulent Royal Palace in Gödöllő and Pannohalma Abbey.


And let's not forget about the country's stunning natural beauty. From the rolling hills of the 7 different wine regions to the serene waters of Lake Balaton and Hortobágy National Park in eastern Hungary is a World Heritage Site located in a steppe environment. Hungary is a destination that truly has it all.


And what better way to experience this natural beauty than with a luxury outdoor adventure? Imagine yourself hiking through the hills, horseback riding through the countryside, like Sisi better known as Empress Elizabeth or even taking a hot air balloon ride over the picturesque landscapes. It's an adventure of a lifetime.


So, if you are planning that Danube River cruise, I think more than just a one night pre or post stay in Hungary is in order. If you think so too, schedule a consultation and we can plan that Hungarian adventure for you.
