Bordered by seven other countries, Hungary is one of Europe’s foremost historical melting pots. The country’s old-school architecture gives much of the place a fairy-tale quality, and many of the attractions - Budapest’s magnificent Citadella, its enchanting Vajdahunyad Castle, the epic Hungarian State Opera House – are really magical. It’s a small country, and while there are some beautiful rural pockets worth exploring, most of the action takes place in Budapest. Read on for the attractions that will make your Hungary travel experience one for the ages.
