Say Szia to Hungary!

We first visited Hungary back in 2012, and fell instantly in love with its capital on the Danube, Budapest.

We’ve since been back 3 times, and now we live here – that’s how much we like it! Budapest — vibrant, beautiful, and so very cool, once you know where to look — deserves weeks and seasons of your time, with the city bursting to life in the summers, and Budapester’s living their lives outdoors. Outside the capital, Hungarian cities see few international tourists, but still have much to offer. We hope to tell more of these stories as we use Budapest as a base.
