Are you planning a trip to Hungary? Well, you’ve come to the right place! Here’s where you can find all our best Hungary travel tips, guides, and delicious food.

Our first trip to the country was in 2019. Here we got the chance to explore Budapest, which has become one of our favorite cities in Europe! It was easy to fall in love with the cuisine and history of this amazing destination.

We soaked at the famous thermal spas, hit the local markets, and grabbed drinks at the ruin bars. We even made a trip to Eger in Northern Hungary to go wine tasting and see the historic castle.

Check out all our Hungary travel guides for tips, and to hear all about our own experiences. We plan to go back to see more of the country soon, so stay tuned!
