Popular Destinations


Marvel at the beautiful architecture in Budapest. Most of it built in the 19th Century, and taking themes from Baroque, Neoclassical, Eclectic and Art Nouveau, you’re sure to get lost in the amazingly designed streets.

Budapest also has many thermal springs that Hungarians swear by their healing properties, so make sure to take a dip and relax.


Located at the foot of the Naszaly Mountain, Vac is a great place to experience Hungarian culture and art. Based on the bays of the Danube River, it really is a sight to behold.

Like Budapest, there is also an abundance of hot springs, one you should definitely visit is situated behind the famous church of Seven Chapels, and is said to have mysterious healing powers.

Make sure to tour a Hungarian winery, with many having up to 100 wines to choose from and sample.


Near the Croatian border, at the foot of the Mecsek Mountains, Pecs is seen as a melting pot of multiculturalism, boasting a peaceful union between Hungarians, Serbians, Croatians, Germans, and other nations, giving it the nickname ‘the borderless city’.

There are plenty of museums for you to lap up the culture, as well as winding streets with gorgeous architecture, and a myriad of pubs and restaurants.
