It is all about the outdoors if you catch flights to Hungary, from indulging in a mid-winter thermal bath surrounded by snow to rolling green hills that are waiting to be climbed, and wagon rides taken through sleepy towns.
May and September are two months when the country is at its best – flowers and sunshine in May, and more sun and the grape harvest in September.
Must see spots in Hungary
You might not get to grips with the language once you are off your flights to Hungary but there is plenty to enjoy from tasting the wine from cellars carved into the sides of the Valley of Beautiful Women at Eger to wandering through the biggest open air museum in the country at Szentendre, consisting of five reconstructed villages containing old wooden homes and public buildings.
Southern Hungary has an altogether different atmosphere with Pecs almost feeling like a Mediterranean town, and the waters of the hot springs at Harkany holding the highest sulphuric content in Hungary. The Great Plain has been central to many Hungarian myths and legends, and many poems and songs have been dedicated to it.
But before catching your homeward flights Hungary has one more surprise in store – the cowboys at Kiskunsag National Park. They put on a stunning show between May and October, one part of which sees a single cowboy drive five horses while straddling the back two.
