Things To Do On Holiday In Hungary

Apr 21, 2008
Hungary is the landlocked country situated in the Central Europe. The country mainly experiences the continental climate. This means the country faces hot summers, with lower humidity levels. Summer months are the main months for people taking a family holiday in Hungary. You can rent a luxury villa or a self catering apartment direct from the holiday home owner.

Frequent rain falls and snowy winters are why Hungary is becoming more popular for winter sports such as skiing. Ski chalets are available to rent along with self catering apartments. Tourists who enjoy the outdoor lifestyle can rent a holiday cottage in the mountains, hiking, climbing, horse riding, fishing and swimming are just a few of the activities that can be enjoyed.

Many tourists rent a holiday villa or self catering villa and visit the world heritage sites of Hungary. Budapest is the most famous heritage site. It is the capital city of Hungary and famous for three sites, Buda, Pest and Castle Hill. You will find the marvellous Royal Palace situated here. It is built in Gothic style. It has been built and modified for more than 300 years. In 1968, the castle was destroyed by the Christian army. In 1715, the castle was rebuilt once again. Buda Castle Labyrinth is another famous tourist attraction. It is the underground maze which stretches all the way to Castle Hill.

Most tourists rent a holiday apartment or cottage and use this as a base to explore the local tourist attractions. One that is not to be missed is The Great Synagogue in Budapest. This is the largest synagogue is Europe. It is stunning monument. The Szoborpark statue park is another favourite for tourists and is well worth visiting.

Most of the statues are of communists from the history of Hungary. As you walk around, imagine driving to your job every day and driving past these monumental statues on your way to remind you of the leader that you must honour and accept, no matter how much terror he brings to your country. The museum is an introduction to the spirit behind the Iron Curtain.

For lovers of shopping there is The Central Market Mall. This is situated in Budapest. The 19th century market is the largest in the city. This was built in the 1890s and was re-established in 1994. Budapest offers rented accommodation such as self catering apartments and holiday villas; you can arrange this through the home owner.

Another great attraction are The Great Plains as they can be used for horse riding at the weekends. These plains are also the home to various popular stud farms that are used for regular horse shows and exhibitions. You can book for horse riding lessons or go on excursions with various horse riding schools.

Hungary is a great place for both summer and winter holidays, whether you're looking to rent a luxury villa with a swimming pool in the sun, or a ski chalet in the snow, Hungary is the perfect location.
