Breadbasket of Europe
Because tourism throughout the whole country is not as popular as in other European countries, much of the natural beauty of Hungary has not been developed or exploited. Visitors today are drawn to the unspoiled picturesque landscape, the capital metropolis surrounded by charming small towns and villages, and the plethora of thermal baths. The country's number of well-preserved archaeological ruins, castles, cathedrals, and medieval towns provide opportunities to those wanting a taste of European history. With the opportunity to explore both time-worn architecture and notable natural surroundings in every region, Hungary provides sightseeing opportunities with the amenities of traditional tourist destinations.
