About Hungary

Hungary, Magyarorszeg in Hungarian, no longer has access to the sea; although many people regard Lake Balaton (Plattensee - shallow sea - in German) as the Hungarian Sea. The lake is the largest in Central Europe.

Weather in Europe:
Local weather forecasts for destinations around Europe.


After scouring the alleyways of downtown Pest and Buda's Castle Hill on your first visit, you may return to discover the neighbourhoods between the two keruts (ring-boulevards): the high and narrow streets of Terezvaros, the squares and backstreet cafes of Erszebetvaros, the seedy but intriguing Jozsefvaros.

Budapest is a city to discover in steps and stages - every time you go there, you will find a whole new area of town you'd previously overlooked, that turns out to again have a mood of its own. The city is beautiful in mid-winter, its quiet charm preserved in icy melancholy; in summer, residents and tourists alike flock to the lovely Varosliget (City Park) and Margit Island.

There's more to find even further out: don't forget to put on your hiking boots one day and take a city bus west into Buda Hills - you can walk for hours in the forests there, and find magnificent views out over the Danube and the city.

For one more out-of-the-way tip, if you're heading for a leisurely stroll on Margit Island anyway, check into the Buda riverside and look up the small but impressive tomb of Gul Baba, where Muslims and Baha'i pilgrims meet - and find it by walking up the pretty, strangely Balkanesque Gul Baba utca - sheer fairy tale stuff.

Budapest Jewish Heritage Tours

Budapest has the largest Jewish community in Central Europe, with an active religious, artistic and historical heritage. Budapest's Jewish Quarter is home to several historic sites, including the Synagogue Triangle of Dohany Street, Rumbach and Kazinczy Synagogues.

The lake really does change colours. The southern side of the lake, from Balatonaliga to Fonyod, is a continuation of bathing spots, camping facilities, 'Zimmer frei' signs, and German-registered cars.

Siofok, on the southern shore, is often referred to as the capital of Lake Balaton.
