Landlocked Hungary sits at the heart of Europe, its position and extensive railway infrastructure making it an ideal destination for inclusion on a bespoke holiday with GRJ independent.
Whilst Hungary's landscapes may not be quite as varied and dramatic as those of some of its immediate neighbours, the country is naturally beautiful nonetheless. The Great Hungarian Plain dominates just over fifty percent of the country to the east, a vast expanse of flat, fertile lowlands dotted with a number of interesting spa towns.
Low-lying mountains are a feature of northwest Hungary. Natural highlights include Lake Balaton, Central Europe's largest lake, and Lake Hévíz, the second largest thermal lake in the world.
As pleasant as Hungary's rural scenery may be, you'll find that its towns and cities are the true stars of the show. Esztergom, a town situated on the right bank of the River Danube in northern Hungary, dates back to the Middle Ages and is overlooked by the country's largest church - the spectacular Esztergom Basilica.
