WOW Hungary - Well Spring of Wonders
Whether it is the country’s strong folk culture, spas and baths, the cowboys of the “puszta”, the beautiful Parliament building, the spicy and hearty cuisine favouring paprika, in Hungary you are guaranteed to find authentic, impulsive and profound experiences that will turn into memories you will remember for the rest of your life.
Water plays an important role in the country’s built, natural and cultural heritage. It is present in the beautiful historical thermal baths, the spas and lakes all over the country, or the immerse Danube River splitting the capital into Buda and Pest.
Budapest is a truly authentic and historic European capital, but it also has an innovative, pulsating personality, making it a versatile and cosmopolitan city. The beautiful built and natural environment, the grandiose architecture, the historical thermal spas, the diverse and vibrant gastronomy, a blossoming fashion and design scene, and the immensely rich cultural life, define Budapest’s sparkling and original character.
The city’s liberating atmosphere continually stimulates your senses. Budapest’s spice derives from its vitality and cultural effervescence, and we Hungarians use the city in a creative way. We are able to do “usual” things unusually well. Let us show you the majestic Buda castle hosting a wine festival, the Liberty bridge turning into a picnic spot above the Danube river, or the unique vibe of the ruin bars in the Jewish District.
Another such characteristic of Budapest is its diverse and vibrant gastronomy. The capital offers a great variety of street food, Michelin-starred restaurants, bistros, family restaurants, brunch places, market halls. Chimney cake and lángos are iconic local specialities, but you can taste examples of the heritage of Jewish-Hungarian cuisine or Hungarian comfort food, such as potato casserole or fried pig ears.
The creativity of Hungarian chefs, the unforgettable flavours of the country’s ever evolving cuisine will certainly captivate you. Explore the new Mecca of gastro-hedonists: from historic coffee houses to ruin pubs, from gastro bars to fine dining, Budapest provides many temptations for those who love to eat.
Hungary meanwhile is one of the safest in the world: it is among the TOP15 safest countries in the 2017 Global Peace Index.
