Hungary may be a small country but it's packed with things to do during your Hungary holiday. Wine enthusiasts will relish in a trip to the Villany wine route so be sure to take a souvenir home - or if outdoor adventure sounds more appealing Lake Balaton is great. Hungary is perfect for city breaks with Budapest being top of the list. If you simply just want to relax for a few days make sure to check out the thermal spas and bubbling lake in Heviz. What could be better than getting pampered in natural surroundings?
Budget airlines easyJet and Wizz Air offer cheap flights to Hungary and both British Airways and Jet2 offer flights for reasonable prices. As there's Hungary flights from many UK airports it makes the country easily accessible - great for a weekend break. Direct flights only fly into Budapest but it's possible to visit other parts of the country by booking an indirect flight, although these can work out more expensive. Budapest Franz Liszt International Airport is located about 16 kilometres southeast of the city centre with good public transport on hand to take you to your destination.
Intercity trains link Budapest with all the major cities with Hungary and offer a cheap and fast way to explore the country during your Hungary holiday. Young people under the age of 26 can qualify for a 33% discount at weekends (including Friday afternoons). Alternatively take advantage of the bus service; the prices are similar to Intercity trains but you can run the risk of experiencing delays.
It's possible to secure some great deals when looking for cheap hotels in Hungary if you book in advance - it really is easy to visit Hungary on a budget!
If you're visiting Budapest be sure to take advantage of the beautiful green parks the city has to offer. For a cheap day out visit the local supermarket to stock up on picnic foods then sit back and watch the world go by! If you decide to eat out during your Hungry holiday be aware that prices tend to be higher in typically touristy places so instead venture slightly outside to ensure you get a cheaper meal. A typically Hungarian meal will include soup, meat with potatoes and a side salad followed by a dessert such a pancakes. Make sure you test their national dish of Goulash. You won't go home hungry!
