Budapest is one of the most beautiful river cities in Europe. Former co-capital of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, it has preserved beautiful remains from this glorious period that have survived the centuries and - on the whole - escaped the restructuring of the communist regime. The city, which resists as best as it can the voracity of real estate investors, seduces as much by the patina of its old districts as by its present vitality. Its human size and well-organized public transport make it easy and pleasant to travel.
An original culinary and wine-growing tradition :
A true culinary crossroads, Hungarian cuisine is rich in both Eastern and Western influences. It has an extraordinary range of dishes and spices that give it a unique taste. Hungary can be proud of its twenty-two wine-growing regions. The famous tokaj alone symbolizes the subtlety of Hungarian grape varieties, but there are many other wines to discover!
