The best way to visit Hungary would be by train, as the country benefits from a well developed network. You should start with Hungary’s capital, the beautiful Budapest. Here is everything that you want like museums, interesting buildings, witnesses of the eventful history of the city, and lively streets.
If you are fond of cycling, go on the flat lands around the Tisza River, where you can also enjoy a horse riding. If you go to Hungary as a couple, board on a boat trip along the majestic Danube river, a very romantic way to discover the activities provided by the river, such as fishing or bird watching.
Hop on a train to Miskolc, Pécs or Gyor, here you will find shopping malls. If you stay in Budapest, run to the MOM Park; you may need a full day to list all the shops. If you have a sweet tooth and like shopping, Hungary’s Nyugati train station provides all you need!
Paprika is the spice you will notice in Hungary’s peasant cuisine. Do not miss the well known Goulash soup (beef, onions, garlic), typical of the country, as the Balatoni fogas, but beware the imitation, Fogas is a fish only available in the Lake Balaton… Don’t forget to taste wines such as Riesling.
Board a train to North eastern Hungary, in Szilvásvárad, where the majestic snow-white Lipizzaner horses are waiting for you.
