Official site

This wonderful country brims with culture and natural beauty. Budapest - one of the finest capitals in the world, Lake Balaton - Europe's largest freshwater lake, and numerous nature conservation areas await visitors, lovers of culture or nature alike. Those who seek rest and rejuvenation will turn to one of our many thermal spas, famous for their natural healing spring water.


The area of the country is barely 100,000 km2. The language is spoken nowhere else. The folk songs bear no resemblance to those of other nations. Yet, the Hungarian people have been living in the centre of Europe for over 1,100 years. Despite frequent tragic upheavals which spared nothing and nobody, the country boasts a heritage that attracts people from far and wide. Citing the city's unparalleled panorama, UNESCO declared Budapest, Hungary's capital, "the Pearl of the Danube", a World Heritage site. After Iceland, Hungary has the world's largest reserve of surface  thermal water: hundreds of springs help thousands in recovering. Lake Balaton, Central Europe's largest lake, is a favourite get-away for families with young children, fans of sailing and lovers of the beach.

Although we have had plenty of unwelcomed visitors in the last 1000 years in the Carpathian Basin, now Hungary welcomes you with open arms!

Come take a tour, learn more about Hungarian history, culture and our way of life!
