When Nobel Prize winner Enrico Fermi was asked if he believed in extra terrestrials, he replied: "They are among us, but they call themselves Hungarians". This small country is one of the oldest in Europe, situated in the middle of the continent. Hungarians speak a language and have a culture unlike any other in the region: this distinctiveness has been both a source of pride and an obstacle for more than 1100 years.
Hungary boasts one of the world’s most beautiful cities, Budapest, the ‘Pearl of the Danube’. As well as that, the country's 2,000 old Roman ruins and 400 year old Turkish monuments can be found side by side and Central Europe’s largest freshwater lake – Balaton – provides a natural paradise for its visitors. Hundreds of therapeutic mineral springs gush up from the depth, both in Budapest and elsewhere. And Hungarian hospitality is as legendary as its goulash, goose liver and paprika. Budapest makes a wonderful city to visit in its own right, and a natural springboard for discovering the rest of the country.
The renaissance of an Art Nouveau landmark in an unrivalled river setting with panormamic views of the Danube and the hills of Buda. Beautifully decorated rooms in creams and whites with lots of natural light, some with private balconies, and all the mod cons. Spoiling facilities, and in splendour.
