Hungary (Hungarian: Magyarország) is an EU member state featuring a gorgeous capital city, Budapest, and the largest lake in Central Europe, Balaton. Hungary offers many diverse destinations: relatively low mountains in the north-west, the Great Plain in the east, lakes and rivers of all sorts, and many beautiful small villages and hidden gems of cities. Top this off with Hungary's great accessibility in the middle of Europe, a vivid culture and economy, and you get a destination absolutely worth visiting if you're in the region.
Budapest, Hungary’s capital, is bisected by the River Danube. Its 19th-century Chain Bridge connects the hilly Buda district with flat Pest. A funicular runs up Castle Hill to Buda’s Old Town, where the Budapest History Museum traces city life from Roman times onward. Trinity Square is home to 13th-century Matthias Church and the turrets of the Fishermen’s Bastion, which offer sweeping views.
This one thousand year old Episcopal and archiepiscopal seat is one of the most beautiful Baroque cities in Hungary. Its inhabitants are proud of its glorious past and priceless heritage of monuments. In 1552 a handful of Hungarian warriors held the town's fort against a Turkish force of forty thousand.
Long associated with the wine industry that Eger is renowned for, Szépasszony Völgy has become something of a tourist trap over the last decade. This does not mean, however, that it is not worth checking out as it still retains some of its charm. The Valley is home to a selection of resaurants of varying quality and, of course, cellars, over 200 of them predominantly offering Egri Bikavér (Bull's Blood) but also other Hungarian varieties including Muskotály (semi-sweet Muscatel), Leányka (medium-dry white) and Medoc Noir (rich, dark, sweet red).
The most exciting food-space in town: five-star hamburgers and mamma’s homemade taco miracles with amazing coffee, handcrafted ice cold beers and great cocktails. You can also run into street musicians randomly! Meet up here!
Our visitors may have an extraordinary experience at Evidens Bistro. There are dishes continuously featured on the menu that are prepared at the table on our flambe carts. Traditional Hungarian catering was characterised by respect towards the guests, courtesy, and spicy dishes in big portions. We can guarantee that those guests of ours who seize this opportunity will experience all of the above.
Romania (Romanian: România) is a country on the western shores of the Black Sea; except for Dobruja, it is north of the Balkan Peninsula. It is a country of great natural beauty and diversity and a rich cultural heritage, including a variety of ethnic, linguistic, and confessional groups. Romania enchants visitors with its scenic mountain landscapes and unspoilt rural areas, but also with its historic cities and busy capital. It has seen significant development and is one of the most recent members of the European Union. Still, it may surprise some of its visitors who are used to western Europe. It has six cultural and one natural UNESCO world heritage sites. Romania is a large country which can sometimes be shocking with contrasts: some cities are truly modern, while some villages can seem to have been brought back from the past. While it has significant cultural similarities with other Balkan states, it is regarded as unique due to its strong Latin heritage, reflected in every part of Romanian society from its culture to its language. Things for which Romania is famous include: the Carpathian mountains, wine, medieval fortresses, Dacia cars, Dracula, stuffed cabbage leaves (sarmale), the Black Sea, sunflower fields, painted monasteries and the Danube Delta. Famous Romanians are Constantin Brâncuși (sculptor), George Enescu (composer, violinist, pianist, conductor), Mircea Eliade (writer, historian, philosopher), Herta Müller (writer), Henri Coandă (aviation pioneer - the Coandă effect is named after him), Nicolae Ceaușescu (Romania's last communist dictator), Nadia Comăneci (gymnast), Gheorghe Hagi (former association football player) and Leonard Doroftei (former WBA world champion).
