Northern Hungary travel guide

4.1
Castles · Thermal Spas · Landmarks
Historical architecture combines with natural wonders to make up Northern Hungary. Castles, fortresses, and cathedrals dot the countryside, as do caves and thermal baths. The natural landscape here lends itself to winemaking, particularly in the Tokaj-Hegyalja wine region, where you can spend your time hopping from cellar to cellar trying many different varietals. National parks here contain the country's highest peaks, as well as waterfalls and miles of trails. Not only have many natural settings been left untouched, but numerous villages appear fixed in a bygone era. The contrast of these small historical towns with the bigger cities of Central Hungary is reason enough to visit this region.
