Where the natural might of the River Danube meets the cultural splendour of this proud nation
Tours in Hungary
From the country’s historic inner-city areas to its dramatic scenery, Hungary holidays have enough to satisfy any traveller. As the morning light breaks across the River Danube and gives way to panoramic views over the magnificently preserved capital city, Budapest, feel humbled by the relationship between culture and nature at the heart of Europe.
Budapest is actually two cities: Buda, dominated by the Castle Hill Palace complex high above the river; and Pest, the bustling and more cosmopolitan centre of trade. From the 14th to the 16th centuries Buda was the dominant city, before a royal settlement caused several castles to be built, and a formal union between Buda and Pest, on opposite sides of the Danube, took place in 1867.
