Hungary is one of those countries that holds countless surprises, and yet hasn’t been overtaken by mass tourism. It’s affordable, beautiful, and friendly. While Hungary’s landscape is worth a look for its gentle and striking qualities, it’s the architecture and city life that really makes Hungary what it is. Here you’ll find everything from Roman ruins to Art Nouveau bathhouses. To see what Hungary really has to offer, as well as to learn a little about the country’s past, a Hungary sightseeing tour with a knowledgeable local is your best bet. Fortunately there are many ways to sightsee, so you’re bound to find something you love!
For many first-time travellers to Hungary, Budapest is the obvious choice. You can explore the Museum Mile, and of course both sides of the Danube embankments, including the Buda Castle District. Andrássy út and Heroes’ Square cannot be passed up, nor the Underground Railway. On your Hungary sightseeing tour, your guide can lead you through Budapest on a tram, where you’ll stop by Matthias Church, Fishermen’s Bastion, and of course, the Royal Palace. Chain Bridge, stretching across the Danube, is another important stop. The architecture is far from disappointing, and when it’s all lit up at night, there’s a definite wow-factor.
But your Budapest explorations may even include some culinary endeavours, such as a stop by the Central Market Hall to try some excellent slices of salami and sausages while learning about the building’s history. An experienced guide can take you along hidden back streets and alleys, and to some hidden gems tucked into Central Pest, including small family-owned eateries where all the locals come to hang out. You can learn about Jewish heritage, as well as the Ottoman influences from long ago. While getting a cultural fix, pay attention to the many Art Nouveau structures tucked around the area.Read More ...
