Lake Balaton

hevizIt is known as the biggest fresh water lake in Central Europe and it is the most visited tourist resort. It is a popular destination for those who seek relaxation as well as entertainment possibilities. The Blue Ribbon International Sailing Competition is held at Lake Balaton every year in July, and music festivals of various kinds are also organised here. The lake is easily accessible by car as well as by train. Visitors can access the whole region from the lake due to a cycle path of more than 200 kilometres, or by ship or by train. The Tihany Peninsula and town of Keszthely are holiday spots not to be missed; visitors can enjoy Balatonfüred, Balatonalmádi, Siófok (much frequented by the young) as well as the wine regions of the northern Balaton area, where they can taste excellent quality Hungarian wines with a nice dinner.

Aggtelek National Park

aggtelekThe Aggtelek National Park lies in the Gömör-Torna Karst region, an area rich in unique natural and cultural assets. It is the first Hungarian national park to be dedicated to the protection of abiotic values, superficial land formations and caves. The subterranean natural treasures, namely the caves of the Aggtelek Karst and the Slovak Karst were inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1995.

One of the most endearing treasures of the National Park is the Baradla Cave, which is the biggest and the most magnificent cave in Hungary. Excavations in and around the cave have proved that it has been a shelter to man for more than 7 000 years. Recently we have opened some other unique caves to visitors, for example, the Imre Vass Cave, the Béke Cave and the Rákóczi Cave.

Besides the cave tours, we offer special guided tours (‘eco-’, zoological, and botanical tours) in the national park area. In particular, the guided walks in Jósvafő provide an excellent opportunity to learn about the natural and cultural environment of the village.

The "Gömör-Torna Folk and Art Festival" is an outstanding series of events throughout this year. The Aggtelek National Park and the charming villages of the Aggtelek Karst offer the unique experience of philharmonic nd chamber music in the Baradla Cave and also in local churches.

Ópusztaszer Heritage Park

opusztaszerOur 136-acre theme park less then 2-hours south of Budapest, half-an-hour north of Szeged on the M5 highway (10 km from the Kistelek exit) invites you to explore the history of Hungary as well as the culture and life-style of people living on the Southern Great Plain. Beautifully nestled in the Pusztaszer Protected Landscape, the Heritage Park marks one of the most sacred and important historical sites in Hungary, Ópusztaszer, where in the year 896 the modern nation of Hungary was born.

Ópusztaszer is the cradle of the state of Hungary. Through its history, it strengthens the nation, and gives hope to future generations. According to Hungarian tradition, it was at this place, around 896 AD that Chief Árpád, the Duke of the Magyars and his chieftains (his leading men) pitched up their tents, and codified the common laws of their new country. Thus, today’s Heritage Park is far more than a tourist attraction: it is the place where all Hungarians (Magyars) can turn to in order to strengthen their national identity, to remember and preserve their history, culture, and traditions.

Spas in Hungary

szechenyiThe Romans were the first to fall in love with Hungary, but certainly not the last… It is said that wherever they went, they built, and where they built, they bathed. They knew of salus per aquam (“healing by water”) and made maximum use of this natural treasure. More than two millennia have passed, but the thermal water is showing no sign of running dry.

Today's uses of the therapeutic water bear little resemblance to those of the Roman Empire. Thermal water is now recommended for a wide variety of conditions, from the scourge of the modern age, stress, to joint pain and gynaecological or skin complaints. Whatever the ailment, Hungary's healing garden has just the cure. Patients are spoilt for choice not only in terms of the wide range of wellness spas and resorts equipped according to the highest medical standards, but also when it comes to accommodation – there is something for all tastes and budgets. Whether you chose one of the famous cities, such as Budapest, Eger, Esztergom, Szeged or Visegrád, the opulent vineyards of Transdanubia, or the holiday capital of Lake Balaton, there is something for everyone.

Travels

Top 5 Side Trips from Budapest


1
Vienna is the main capital and the largest city of Austria. There is much to see: From Gothic St. Stephen’s Cathedral to the Imperial Palace to the Art Nouveau splendor of the Secession, from the magnificent baroque palace Schönbrunn to the Museum of Fine Arts to modern architecture at the MuseumsQuartier.

3
Venice Venice (Italian: Venezia) is one of the most interesting and lovely places in the world. This sanctuary on a lagoon is virtually the same as it was six hundred years ago, which adds to the fascinating character. Venice has decayed since its heyday and is heavily touristed (there are slightly more tourists than residents), but the romantic charm remains.
4
Lake Bled was formed after the recession of the Bohinj glacier. It is up to 2120 m long and up to 1380 m wide, its maximum depth being 30.6 m and tectonic in origin. After the last Ice Age, the Bohinj glacier deepened the natural tectonic hollow and gave into its present form. The basin was filled with water when the ice melted. The lake has no large natural tributaries; it is fed only by a few springs.
5
Warsaw, nurturing over 400 years of pride as a capital, is Poland’s largest city and an economic, political, and cultural centre. The symbol of the city is the Mermaid, featured on the city seal. Warsaw is a bustling metropolis and features an unforgettable history. A city where a fourth of the terrain is covered by parkland and a city of culture for all tastes and budgets...
