Get ready to explore Hungary, the amazing land of the Magyars, staying with Iberostar Hotels & Resorts. For its amazing natural landscapes, its beautiful cities, its rich architectural legacy, the tasty Hungarian food and its fascinating folklore, where there is no lack of music and folk dance, you will fall in love with this Eastern European country from the first moment. To come and find out for yourself, there is nothing better than booking a room at the Iberostar luxury hotel in Budapest.
Located in the geographical centre of Continental Europe, this landlocked state, surrounded by Slovakia, Ukraine, Romania, Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia and Austria, occupies the middle basin of the Danube River. To the west of the country you have Lake Balaton, the largest freshwater lake in Central Europe, which has helped make Hungary one of the top 30 tourist destinations in the world.
Since we are talking about water, it is worth emphasizing that Hungary owes part of its attraction to visitors to its thermal springs and its many spas. Hence, its capital, the stately Budapest, is known by the nickname of the city of spas. Although, this is not its only moniker, as it is also called the pearl of the Danube for its undeniable beauty.
Although its surface is a rather modest 93,028 km2, Hungary has a lot to offer including many places declared World Heritage sites by UNESCO. In addition, it has a wealth of charming towns and villages, where you can relax and soak up the atmosphere and imagine a simpler time.

Undoubtedly, the main attraction of Hungary is the capital city of Budapest. Divided into two clearly differentiated parts that give it its name -the Buda neighbourhood, famous for its historic centre and the more commercial side called Pest, this city is perfect for a romantic getaway or a business trip.
Among the sights you should visit in Budapest, are the Buda Royal Castle, probably the most famous Hungarian building, the Parliament which was founded in 1884; the church of King Marias, the Budapest Opera, the Dohány Street Synagogue, which is the second largest synagogue on the planet, the Fishermen's Bastion (1902) and the Chain Bridge. Take a stroll along the elegant Andrássy Avenue, or ride the Budapest metro, the oldest underground railway in mainland Europe. In the evenings there is nothing better than climbing the Gellert hill and enjoying a sunset with breath-taking views over the river. In fact, several of the most emblematic corners of the Magyar capital were declared World Heritage Sites in1987 and 2002.
The list of reasons to visit Hungary does not end in the streets of its capital, however. Proof of this is another town that is worth visiting: the amazing Pécs, located in the southwest of Hungary, just a pair of hours from Budapest near the border with Croatia. In addition to a Paleo-Christian church that is also a World Heritage Site (Sopianae), it also houses the fifth oldest university in Europe (dating back to 1367) and other monuments of interest, such as the cathedral, the Gazi Kasim Pasha mosque and the Archaeological Museum.
No less interesting is Gyõr, the most important city in the northwest of the country and the sixth largest in Hungary, only 90 minutes from Budapest. Its picturesque old town, located on the Káptalan hill, displays numerous baroque buildings, which stand at the confluence of three rivers: the Danube, the Raba and the Rábca. To this list we should add Hollókö, a picturesque village located in the north of the country and located 100 km (62 miles) from Budapest, whose streets and excellently preserved houses are a magnificent example of traditional Hungarian architecture, earning the award of UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987.
Finally, it is worth mentioning the Benedictine Pannonhalma Archabbey. This medieval building, founded in 996, is one of the oldest historical monuments in Hungary. Its setting in the Hortobágy National Park, where the landscape, known as the puszta is dominated by plains and lagoons, and the beautiful Lake Balaton, is also very appreciated by foodies, due to the numerous restaurants and wineries in the area.
