Hungary, land of thermal springs, is nestled in the heart of the continent in Central Europe. Here, in one of Europe’s oldest countries, you can find 2000-year-old Roman ruins next door to 400-year-old Turkish monuments.

Hungarian (Magyar) is the language commonly spoken throughout the country’s three regions, which include the hilly wine-growing region of Eger-Tokaj; Transdanubia, a mountainous region west of the Danube (and home to the famed Kőszeg village on the Austrian border); and the prairie lands and lakes of the Alföld region. Budapest, Hungary’s capital, is centrally located within the three regions.
