Everything is done differently in Europe's most unusual nation, where you can see spectacular architecture and indulge yourself in amazing natural spas.
With a language related to Finland's but unlike those of any of its neighbours, Hungary is a culturally isolated country that fascinates because of its unique development. It has absorbed the best of every foreign country with which it has come into contact, from the Romans to the Turks. It's a land of gentle, rolling hills, beautiful cities and striking, isolated architectural follies. You'll find ancient Roman ruins in the middle of the countryside and baroque churches towering over villages that still look much as they must have in medieval times. Beyond the vineyards, broad bridges span the Danube, and Hungary's cities reveal their charms.
