Danube Bend

Danube Bend

Hungary’s famous River Danube takes a sharp turn just north of Budapest, and the bend is widely considered the most beautiful stretch of the entire river, surrounded by green hills and charming little towns on both banks. On the West bank, you’ll find Szentendre, a historically Serbian town known for its arts scene; Visegrád, where palace ruins mark the first recorded spread of the Renaissance outside Italy; and Esztergom, home of the largest Hungarian cathedral. On the East bank, you can visit the botanical garden in Vácrátót or hike through the scenic landscape of Nagymaros.

Lake Balaton

Lake Balaton

Spend a day at the largest natural lake in central Europe, where you can go for a swim and hang out on the shore with friends. Lake Balaton is surrounded by popular resort towns along its southern shore and mountainous wine country to the north, giving you plenty of alternatives to lake activities while you’re in the area. Sailing, fishing, and other water sports are popular ways tourists spend time at Balaton during the warmer months, and if urban activities are more your thing, enjoy the night life in the resort towns after spending daylight hours on the water.

Take the opportunity to see locals dressed in the unique and colorful folkloric costumes they’ve inherited from their ancestors and watch as locals parade through the streets in horse-drawn carriages for special events.
