Arrival in the capital city is the first and the foremost step of the Hungary itinerary. Budapest is a delightful city that is sometimes called the “Little Paris of Middle Europe”. When thinking of Hungary, many tourists probably only know of its capital of Budapest. This isn’t surprising with the abundance of great things to do and see. However, Hungary hides a treasure trove of historic baroque towns, gorgeous scenery, and vast wine regions that produce quality wines that are hardly known outside of the country. If you have the time, definitely branch out from Budapest to discover all that the area has to offer.
The Hungarian Parliament is planned on the third on the France itinerary and the location of the Hungarian Parliament just couldn’t be better. Situated on the bank of the Danube River between the Szechenyi Chain Bridge and the Margit Hid, it looks like a rare gem which dazzles with its splendor. Its construction was commissioned by the Hungarian State Assembly in 1880. A competition for the design of the building was held where 19 projects were presented, and the design of the architect Imre Steindl was chosen as the winning one. The creation of this talented architect is a magnificent building in neo-gothic style, displaying both Renaissance and Baroque characters too.
Next destination on Hungary itinerary, about 1 hour and 20 minutes of driving on the freeway from Budapest will bring you to the town of Kecskemet, located in the heart of the Great Plains. This sunny region is captivating with its expansive grasslands, horse-riding culture, and the sparkling Lake Tisza, where a variety of water sports can be enjoyed. Kecskemet is a colorful town known for its Art Nouveau architecture. One of the best examples of the style is the Cifrapalota (Ornamental Palace) with multi-colored tiles adorning its facade.
Eger is an ideal choice to rejuvenate your soul. The town in Northern Hungary is famous for its castle, Turkish thermal baths, and its wines. Explore the historic attractions, soak away your tiredness in the warm medicinal waters that contain a hint of radon, and have a taste of the famous wines in the cellars of the Valley of Beautiful women.
On the fourth day of your Hungary itinerary, you can explore the spa town of the city. Hévíz is a spa town that is 2 hours away from Budapest if you are traveling by car. While moving, it draws visitors year-round to Lake Hévíz, which is the second largest thermal lake in the world, and biologically the biggest active natural lake. The healing waters of the lake are perfect for a dip year round. Temperatures are up to 38 degrees Celsius (100.4 degrees Fahrenheit) in the summer, and the water temperature is never below 22 degrees Celsius (71.6 degrees Fahrenheit), even on the coldest of winter days. In use as a spa since the Roman ages, Hévíz Spa provides you with a relaxing and carefree getaway in the warm arms of the sulfurous lake or through the soft touch of your masseuse’s hands.
After having a morning meal on the street or at the hotel, you can take a private transfer that will lead you to the airport. Say goodbye to Hungary! Hope this Hungary itinerary covers all your desired places in Hungary.
