Why Should I Camp in Hungary?
A Fascinating Culture
A Delicious Cuisine
Hungary is a landlocked central European country that has borders with seven other countries. This makes it an ideal base to conduct a European tour, although there is plenty to see and do in Hungary itself. Hungary's capital is Budapest, and the official language is Hungarian.
Hungary has a long and complex history and has seen successive invasions by Celts, Romans, Huns, Slavs, Magyars and Turks. Hungary's golden age was in the fifteenth century when the country became a 'middle power' within the western world.
Hungary's borders have waxed and waned over the years; the present boundaries were created after the end of the First World War. Hungary can boast of many famous people, such as the composer Bartok and the actor Bela Lugosi.
The landscape of Hungary is pleasingly varied with many national parks ideal for camping. The famous Danube river dominates the region, while the Hungarian Plain features unusual grasslands, the Transdanubian area is hilly and forested, while you can explore the most eastern end of the Alps in the west of Hungary and the foothills of the Carpathians to the east.
