You cannot leave Hungary without partaking in the local tradition of thermal springs and baths. These baths have existed since the Romans settled in Hungary in the first century and locals have enjoyed the warm, mineral-rich waters of the thermal baths ever since. The Szechenyi Bath in Budapest is arguably the most well-known, but there are hundreds more. Just ask a local!
Hungary is known to have an abundance of spectacular natural attractions. On your trip to the country, spend some time in nature. Take a cruise down the Danube river, try one of the hiking trails outside the capital or visit the Lake Heviz – the largest lake in central Europe and the second-largest thermal lake in the world. These are undoubtedly some of the top things to do in Hungary.
Performing arts and traditional arts are an important part of Hungarian culture and some of the best things to do in Hungary.
