Hungary is a small country with a population of around 10 million people but it is a hidden gem with lots of places to visit and things to do. Sometimes Hungary is overlooked in favour of nearby countries but we highly recommend visiting. You will be able to explore the beautiful capital city of Budapest, see architecture, sample the local food and drink or visit Lake Balaton. Tourism is growing steadily in Hungary and it is a good idea to visit on a short beak, holiday or gap year before the crowds start arriving. There is good infrastructure in place for international visitors and many local people can converse in English which makes the experience easier.
