Hungary is located in Central Europe, and has a mild climate. Its excellent infrastructure makes its living standards comparable to Western Europe while it is more affordable.
GEOGRAPHY AND ECONOMY
Hungary is truly in the center of Europe, surrounded by the Carpathian Mountains. Its wide plains make it traditionally strong in agriculture, while its modern infrastructure and skilled workforce make it an ideal center of various industries.
The capital of Hungary rests on the hills of Buda and the plains of Pest – formerly two separate cities on the two sides of the Danube. With its 2 million residents, it is the biggest city in Hungary, while it is still cozier than many Western European capitals. However, it is still a busy hub of economy and culture.
THE TOKAJ WINE REGION
Just one of the UNESCO World Heritage sites in Hungary, the Tokaj wine region is famous for its excellent Aszú wine and its 1,000-year-old tradition of cultivating grapes and producing wine.
Jokingly referred to as “the Hungarian sea”, the coasts of Lake Balaton are popular vacation destinations both among Hungarian and foreign tourists. You can enjoy the water, the spas, go sailing, or even hiking in the surrounding hills, visiting old castles or long-established vineries.
Hungarian universities offer quality education, and attract many foreign students as well; especially the medical, veterinary and business schools are popular among them.
Hungary is rich in thermal springs. There is hardly any city without a spa. The more famous ones include Hévíz near Lake Balaton, the cave spa in Miskolctapolca, or the Hotel Gellért in Budapest.
