Hungary Travel Guide: 11,347 reviews and 28,882 photos

I traveled through Hungary all top quickly for I was there for just eight days. During that brief period I found it be a very sophisticated country with a strong tourist infastructure making it easy to travel it. There are plenty of attractions to see in the various cities that make a visit worth while.
I spent most of my time in Budapest while in Hungary. You can base yourself here and visit several cities in the country on daytrips. However to visit Pecs and Eger like I did it, is best to take you time and spend a night or two in each town.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Lovely cities. Rich Culture
  • Cons:Dull Countryside
  • In a nutshell:Home of One of Europe's Proudest Cultures

    Paul, interesting page with brilliant photos. Unfortunately I only visited Budapest yet, but I have been there twice. I would love to see more of Hungary.

    I can't believe it's been 38 years since I last visited Hungary. When I return, I'll be sure to visit some of the museums you have described. (I think I might even still have some distant relatives in Hungary whom I could try to get in touch with.)

    I must return to Hungary someday because I was there so many years ago, I forgot much of what I saw. In addition, I have to get some pictures, because I don't have any from my brief visit.

    Yes, Paul, I must say that you do the very best descriptions of museums of anyone I've read on VT. You have a keen eye, a natural writing style, and a great passion for travel. It's indeed a pleasure to visit your pages.

    I try to look at most pages on Budapest. I hope to be able to get there one of these days. Your page was a big help in planning.
