Places to Visit in Hungary

The landlocked country of Hungary, with Ukraine, Slovakia, Romania, Croatia, Slovenia, Serbia, and Austria as neighbors, is home to the largest freshwater lake in central Europe – Lake Balaton. It is Europe’s most exotic country blessed with a visual treasure trove of serene landscapes, Roman ruins, Baroque churches, and medieval architectural masterpieces. The Art Nouveau Reök Palace in Szeged appears like a decoration for an aquarium. The delicate buildings of Kőszeg’s Jurisics tér or the Mosque Church in Pécs appear as if they may tumble down any time. Hungary has a lot to delight the travelers. The Chain Bridge, St. Stephen’s Basilica, Vajdahunyad Castle, Ethnographic Museum (Neprajzi Muzeum), Budapest Zoo, Fisherman’s Bastion, Gellért Hill Cave, and Heroes’ Square are some of the top-visited destinations in Hungary. Climb up the Gellért Hill to enjoy breathtaking views of the Citadella (a type of fortress). You would also love to visit Matthias Roman Catholic Church, Hungarian National Gallery, and the Museum of Fine Arts.
