Lakes, rivers, mountains, and charming villages all feature in fascinating Hungary. Not only is it a captivating destination with a strong national character, this landlocked country in Central Europe is also a gateway to seven European countries. Travel to Hungary with Qatar Airways and discover a country with richly varied landscapes and an exciting history.
Hungary has some of Europe’s most beautiful landscapes, from the northern forests and mountains to the great plain that makes up most of the remainder of the country. The Tisza River and Lake Balaton shape Hungary’s eastern region, and through the heart of it flows the fabled Danube River. In fact, this famous river bisects the capital, Budapest, and gives the city its wonderfully light and airy character.
Budapest is an exciting and diverse city, known for its Art Nuevo architecture, which blends several architectural styles into one innovative design. While you’re in Budapest, visit the beautifully landscaped parks of Margaret Island and enjoy the romantic views of the river itself. For panoramic views of the city, make your way to the top of the high citadel, and later relax at any of the astounding Ruda Baths, preserved from the time of Turkish rule in the country.
A trip to Hungary would not be complete without an extrusion to some of the neighbouring cities of Budapest. Just a short drive north you’ll find Szentendre, which is home to exquisite Serbian artworks, while west of the city you will find Lake Balaton, one of the biggest in Europe. Pecs - with its numerous art treasures - lies a short drive to the south. Heading eastward, visitors will find the medieval town of Eger, among the many popular tourist destinations in Hungary and is home to the famous castle and the historic Turkish minaret.
