Rolling hills, inviting lakes, old world charm - and locals who accept travelers as if they were their next-door neighbors. Those are just a few of the reasons to beat a hasty path to Hungary.

In the capital city of Budapest, citizens young and old fill the open air courtyards of their apartment buildings throughout town, playing games, smoking cigarettes, discussing the day's events, and generally enjoying everyone else's company. The atmosphere typifies Budapest as a whole: an inviting city, pulsating with a certain positive energy amid a beautiful backdrop of castles, bridges and the river Danube.

Other regional attractions have also helped make Hungary a not-so-well-kept secret. Tourists have long discovered the allure of Lake Balaton (the largest lake in Central Europe) and the famous spa town of Heviz. It is here that swimmers strip to their skivvies in the frigid temperatures to bask in the perpetually warm thermal waters.
