HUNGARY

 

A primarily flat country, Hungary is known for its colourful folklore, spicy foods (paprika), temperamental and often melancholic music by gypsy violinists, and the vastness of the Puszta (Great Hungarian Plain) with the traditions and skills of the famous Puszta horse riders.

 

The historical past as part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire is reflected in the architectural style of many of the buildings but overall the country retains its typical Hungarian atmosphere.

 

Budapest, divided by the River Danube into Buda and Pest, is a vibrant metropolis reflecting an eventful history and influence from Byzantine times to Hapsburg rule.

 

The city offers good restaurants, many cultural music events and festivals (from classical to modern including dance and folklore) and is known worldwide for its thermal waters.
