Imperial Legacy and Folk Traditions

With a culture and cuisine as lively as its people, Hungary stands out amongst Central European nations. A rich and complex history dating back thousands of years, the Roman and Ottoman empires ignited a love for thermal baths, while the Huns and Magyars left an indelible mark on the people, language, and culture. Years spent under Habsburg rule inspired a dazzling array of art and elegant architecture that modernized the nation. Seductive wines, peppery stews, classical music, charming castles, gentle landscapes, long-standing traditions, and a unique ethnic heritage make Hungary a quintessential stop.

Traveler Reviews

  • "I was taken by the surprising diversity of the cultural, scenic, and historical experiences offered by each of the four countries we visited. As an architectural buff, I particularly enjoyed the architectural styles present in Prague, Budapest, and Krakow."
