Flights to Hungary, land of the Magyars

Home to Europe’s biggest lake and one of its most unique languages, Hungary also has one of the highest rankings per capita of both Nobel laureates and Olympic medals. Exotic and distinctive, it’s one of those sought-after destinations where the return on a cheap flight ticket is an almost endless array of natural and cultural riches.

Outings

There are more than a thousand thermal springs in Hungary, and visitors can enjoy them at a variety of establishments ranging from bona fide Turkish bathhouses to austere sanatoriums. Visitors looking for a truly authentic experience can wade up to a floating chessboard and join the locals in a game.

Travellers in search of unusual souvenirs make their way to Ecseri Piac—one of the biggest flea markets in Central Europe—on the outskirts of Budapest. Stalls are loaded with vintage clothing, antique toys, Soviet tchotchkes and more.

Sights

The Aggtelek National Park features the largest cave system in Central Europe, an immense series of caverns dripping with an otherworldly dreamscape of stalactites and stalagmites. A special favourite for visitors is the Baradla Cave, known also as The Concert Hall for its spectacular acoustics.
 
Nicknamed “The Hungarian Sea” for being the biggest lake in all of Europe, Lake Balaton is one of Hungary’s foremost tourist destinations. The area’s busiest months are June through August, when the water is a bath-like 25ºC or higher.

Food

Over 60,000 people head to Szolnok each year for their annual Goulash Festival. A Goulash King of the Year is crowned and 700 cauldrons of the hearty medieval soup are prepared in celebration of this world-famous national dish.
 
Louis XIV of France once pronounced Tokaji the “wine of kings, king of wines.” Oenophiles still head up in droves to northeastern Hungary for it today.
