Hungary is a beautiful country in Central Europe. If you like the sea, then you are completely wrong here because you will not find a coastline with sunny beaches anywhere in Hungary. The country is completely surrounded by other countries such as Slovakia, Austria, Romania and Serbia. The lack of beach and sea is more than made up for by other natural disasters such as the river Danube, the immense Lake Balaton and the rock formations of the Carpathians. Budapest, the capital, located on the banks of the Danube, is the country's biggest tourist attraction. The city, known for its bathhouses and monumental buildings, is an ideal starting point for a beautiful journey through Hungary.

This 'Hungarian Sea' is the largest lake in Central and Western Europe. Along the shores of the lake are small villages where you can arrange an overnight stay for little money.
