Autumn is a good time to travel to Hungary - most holiday resorts are too busy during the summer months and too cold during the winter months. Hungary has a very cold climate during winter with the summers being very humid and warm. The south of the country enjoys a Mediterranean climate. Heavy snow showers are common during the winter months.

A large part of Hungary's landscape is covered in woodland and wetland. The majority of the land is flat with few hills. There are several large national parks and wetland parks hosting a large amount of wildlife that are protected.

Hungary is home to some of Europe's best architecture. It boasts Europe's third largest church - the Esztergom Basilica, and the second largest abbey in the world - the Pannonhalma Archabbey. The famous Baroque castle is also situated there. Tourism is an important part of the Hungarian economy much of which is due to the stunning city of Budapest.

Budapest is one of the most outstanding cities in Europe and is the capital of Hungary. It is situated on the banks of the river Danube and is a city rich in history, stunning architecture and kind people. 

Its troubled history has left the city with great historical sites, the jewel being Buda castle, which overlooks the Danube.

For anyone interested in the arts, Hungary has a lot to offer. Embroidery, carvings, pottery and paintings are all part of the Hungarian arts and culture. Traditional Hungarian folk music and dance have been popular throughout the centuries. There were a lot of great Hungarian composers. Throughout the years many great artists have left Hungary for political reasons.
There are a large variety of places to stay at reasonable rates. Cheap hostels are plentiful for students, with good quality hotels that will meet most tourists needs. The cheapest time to visit Hungary is during the autumn and winter months.

Hungarian food includes soups, sausages and smoked meat. The Hungarian goulash soup is a well known dish. Other foods widely used are chicken, pork, beef and veal. The main alcoholic drinks produced in Hungary are red and white wine and beer. Fruit juices and coffee are also produced there.

Hungary lies on a tectonic fault line that gives way to many hot springs. There are many wonderful spas built on these hot springs and are well worth a visit if you are in need of relaxation and comfort.

The local currency of Hungary is the Hungarian Forint, but the Euro is widely accepted. People living inside the borders of the European Union do not need a visa to visit or work. People living outside the EU zone should contact their local embassy.

For anyone interested in European culture and likes to enjoy a break in Europe's top cities, a trip to Hungary and Budapest should be top of your list.
