Natural beauty, atmospheric cities and world-famous wines
Stunning architecture, vital folk art, thermal baths and the most exciting capital of Europe after dark are the main attractions of Hungary . Nature varies from vast puszta where csikós have their own culture to mountain areas such as the Transdanubian High Mountains, the Northern High Mountains (Felföld) with a sub-alpine climate and the foothills of the Carpathians that protect the country from the real cold from Siberia. The Danube Bend is one of the most beautiful parts of the river and gives Budapest its charm. Or marvel at the shores of the Lake Balaton , the largest inland lake in Europe.
Large game such as buffalo and szalonta pigs can only be found in the reserves. Small animal species such as foxes, martens, otters, roe deer, wild boars, hamsters and the almost extinct bisam rats often live among the low vegetation. Many migratory birds come to the land and find their protected breeding grounds in the closed bay of Kis Balaton. In the wooded Bükk and Zemplén Hills in the northeastern part of Hungary is the habitat of owls, woodpeckers, raptors and forest birds.
