The Central Hungary/Danube region

Hungary lies in central Europe and the River Danube runs north-south through the centre of the country. It shares its borders with seven countries: Austria to the west, Slovakia to the north, Ukraine and Romania to the east, and Croatia, Serbia and Slovenia to the south. Budapest is in the centre-north of the region and is the perfect base from which to explore the region and the country.

Only a short drive away are a host of other attractions, including Lake Balaton for swimming and boating, the Danube bend and beautiful old towns like Szentendre and Székesfehérvar. Whatever your interests central Hungary has so much to offer.


Budapest, with its wide avenues, art nouveau style and streetside cafes is reminiscent of Paris. It is in fact two cities, Buda with its castle, and Pest. These sit astride the great River Danube. There is a wealth of activities on offer. Take your choice:

Sights to see:

The Castle District; this is the jewel of Buda. Take the cable car up to it and visit the Royal Palace and exquisite St Mathias Church. Enjoy panoramic views across to Pest and then wander down the narrow cobbled streets past old listed buildings.

Pest old town

Andrássy út (the Champs Élysées of Budapest)

The Chain Bridge

Margaret Island in the Danube: perfect for strolling, swimming pools and bike hire etc

St Stephen's Basilica

The splendid neo-classical Central Market (Buy almost anything here!)

Wonderful Museums like the National Museum, National Gallery and Museum of Fine Arts;

To name just a few.

Thermal Spas: Hungary is famous for these, some in beautiful architectural settings. Spend a lazy day in the famous Széchenyi or Gellért and feel those aches and pains ease away.

Cafes and Restaurants: Hungarians love to sit and talk over coffee and cakes (tea too!). And so must you if you are to get the feel of this city! Experience spicy Hungarian cuisine at a restaurant by the Danube at night with the castle lit up high on the far bank, and be serenaded by gypsy fiddlers at your table.


The Budapest Hills: to see these and get a spectacular view of Budapest you can take either the Cogwheel Railway, or the Chairlift up to János Hill (Budapest's highest point), or the Children's Railway (run largely by children!) which climbs up into the hills.

Boat excursions on the Danube leave daily

Lake Balaton: the largest lake in central Europe and ideal for swimming and boating

Székesfehérvar: the ancient capital of Hungary

The Danube Bend: drive north out of Budapest with the Danube on your right side and misty forested hills rising up on the other

Szentendre: a beautifully preserved little town on the Danube half an hour north of Budapest.

"Peace and tranquility"

Perfect location for exploring this beautiful charming area and city.
Our hosts made sure that we were settled in and introduced to this city with much thought and ease.
We felt so relaxed here and felt like home.
Thankyou to you all once again and i hope one day i may return.
The taxi service which runs directly from terminal 2 also made the ease of this trip 100% and of couse the terminal itself was beautiful.I would list this airport my number one favourite.
This city is full of fun from the local means of transport to the tour companies operating buses and boat trips.
The whole city we found beautiful and we have been constantly recommending this destination to all we meet.
So if you have just a few days to tour try this one.

"best ever"

This little cottage is perfect for 2 adults or 2 adults with 1 or 2 children. It is very convenient to groceries, buses to main metro and very peaceful. We had all the amenities that we needed and would stay again in a heart beat.
