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.
