This popular hiking destination is a 45 m long natural formation in which ancient archeological findings were found, proving that ages ago prehistoric men lived in it. You can see a mineral exhibition, the equipment of the office of the manager and the engineer, mining safety equipment, and a mine manager’s apartment with authentic equipment in the Outdoors Mining Museum (Szabadtéri Bányászati Múzeum). A machinery exhibition was presented outdoors, and a five apartment miner’s house was furnished with the characteristic interior of homes of miners between the two world wars.

Vértesszőlős is between Tata and Tatabánya; this settlement has been populated since the ancient times. I became known worldwide when the living space of one of the oldest prehistoric men in Europe, Sam, who lived about half a million years ago, was discovered. The remains of the bones of the prehistoric man, his tools and his preserved footprint can be seen at the Vértesszőlős Archaeological Exhibition (Prehistoric Settlement) of the Hungarian National Museum (Magyar Nemzeti Múzeum).
Tata, “the town of living waters” is a town rich in experiences where besides the line of places of interest, events, natural treasures that seems endless the culinary pleasures also dominate. When visiting the town it is worth visiting Lake Öreg, the Castle of Tata, the Esterházy-palace, the English garden, Lake Cseke, Lake Derítő, Lake Réti, Fényes Bath, the Agostyán Arboretum, and the water mills.
Lake Öreg is in the middle of Tata, the castle of Tata is at its shores and the Esterházy palace is near the castle. Lake Öreg (Öreg-tó) is one of the oldest artificial lakes in Hungary; the purpose of the lake itself and the swamps belonging to it was to protect the castle. The lake is especially great for water sports, restaurants, cafés are on its shores but you can even have a picnic under the plane trees of the neighboring parks that provide cool shades to rest under. The romantic water castle is home to the Domonkos Kuny Museum (Domonkos Kuny Múzeum), in which you can see permanent exhibitions on local history, and you can also see the famous Gothic knight’s hall the jewel of which is a huge stove with the image of a knight. The architectural treasures of the late baroque Esterházy palace (Esterházy-kastély), its interior with decorated design, and its sentimental garden and English park with its origins in the 18th century make the palace a unique sight.
In the English garden (Angolkert) you can find rare plants, artificial ruins, caves, a palm house and an outdoors stage, and in its heart there is Lake Cseke (Cseke-tó), the heaven of fishermen. The line of the living waters of the town is not over with Lake Cseke at all, fishermen also have a central role on Lake Derítő (Derítő-tó) and Lake Réti (Réti-tavak).
However, the Fényes Bath (Fényes Fürdő) also favors those wishing to bathe (from the beginning of June until the end of August), where you can dive in a 22oC spring lake with unique surroundings. Three pools, slides, two saunas (on the shore of the spring lake) and catering units are in the area of the bath.
You can see about 380 evergreen and 40 broadleaf species of trees and shrubs in the Agostyán Arboretum (Agostyáni Arborétum) the significant dimensions of which present an impressive sight for those visiting here. Seeing the water mills is also an interesting program, but if the weather is nice the sights of the Kálvária hill (Kálvária-domb) also attract tourists, and in the winter it is a good choice for sleighing. Skating on the skating rink covered with a tent might also be a pastime for chillier months, or you can participate in the events and festivals of the town that follow each other all year round.
The Tordas Experience Village (Tordasi Élményfalu) offers a great pastime for people of all ages. The entertaining establishment is made up of the unity of the inn, the adventure park and the western village. The inn that unifies past and present is characterized by quick and polite service, cozy environment and Hungarian, domestic meals. A star tour-like rope course system was established in the adventure park. The wooden buildings of the Western village that authentically mirror the past and the culture of America lead the visitors into the world of Western movies. Besides the rustic buildings, artefacts, cowboys, cowgirls, Indians, country music, stunt shows you can enjoy entertaining games, like horseshoe throwing, barrel riding, rodeo bull, archery, shooting gallery, duel, handicraft workshops, laser tag labyrinths, escape room, etc.
Thanks to the thermal baths with indoors pools that operate all year round bathing does not depend on the seasons.

Lake Velence (Velencei-tó) is the third largest natural lake of Hungary after the Lake Balaton and Lake Fertő. The lake and its environment is a favored holiday and hiking destination, its most popular towns are Gárdony and Velencefürdő. In Gárdony, besides the Agárd Thermal Bath and Spa the lake itself offers further swimming opportunities with paying and free beaches (from early spring until early autumn) . For example on the Napsugár Beach (Napsugár Strand) water sports, water bouncing castle, pedalos, playgrounds on the shore, trampoline, catering units wait for guests. It is a perfect location should you wish to go suntanning, or would escape from the heat to under the leafy trees providing shade, or would refresh yourselves in the cool water. On summer nights the Napsugár Beach becomes home to concerts, where every generation can party to awesome music in a nice environment. On the Sport Beach you can spend your free time actively on land (beach football, beach volleyball, street ball, foot tennis, beach ball, mini tennis, petanque) and water (basketball, korfball, volley ball, badminton) sports venues.
Velencefürdő, the holiday region of the town of Velence is in the northeastern corner of Lake Velence. Its largest and at the same time most popular modern, sandy beach is near the Velence Korzó lakeside mall, where you can walk around even in bikinis and flip-flops. There are shops, service units, restaurants, cafés in the Velence Korzó and you can skate on the artificial skating rink covered with a tent from the end of November until the beginning of February.

Budapest is the 9th most populated city of the European Union, divided by the river Danube into two parts, Buda and Pest. The islands of the river within the administrative borders of the city are Csepel island, Margit island, Óbudai island and Szentendrei island. The capital is the 3rd most popular travel destination in the Eastern-Central European region, approximately 3.2 million foreign visitors arrived here in 2015. It is hard to list how many sights, monuments, wonderful buildings and establishments, entertainment and recreation opportunities it has, so we will only mention a couple of them.
The Parliament, which is among the most beautiful parliament buildings in the world, is in the city center of Budapest. The building is a priceless historical treasure, the pride of the Hungarian nation, the home of legislation and the place where the Holy Crown is kept. Visitors can visit the building with the help of guided tours. It is directly on the bank of the river Danube, almost directly across it on the Buda side is the Buda Castle (Budai Vár) and the Fisherman’s Bastion (Halászbástya), to which you can get using the Széchenyi Chain Bridge (Lánchíd) the fastest. The Chain Bridge (Lánchíd) is the symbol of the capital, the oldest and most well known bridge over the Danube to connect Buda and Pest. The Buda Castle District (Budai Várnegyed) is made up of three main parts, the Budavár Palace, Square Szent György, and the historic residential quarter. You can get to the Budavár Palace (Budavári Palota) using a special shuttle (sikló), which is a defining element of the Danube bank vista and provides a really special experience. Its lower station is at the Buda bridgehead of the Széchenyi Chain Bridge, near the Danube bank mouth of the Alagút, and the upper one is between the Budavár Palace and the Sándor-palace (Sándor-palota). The Hungarian National Gallery (Magyar Nemzeti Galéria), the National Széchenyi Library (Országos Széchenyi Könyvtár) and the Budapest Historical Museum (Budapesti Történeti Múzeum) were established in the Gothic style royal palace, near it the Matthias Church (Mátyás-templom) and the Fisherman’s Bastion rise above, from where we can watch the amazing Budapest.
Going further on the Buda side, to the South you can see the 235m high Gellért Hill (Gellért-hegy) with the Citadel (Citadella) and the Statue of Liberty (Szabadság-szobor) on its top. The panorama is fantastic in the night and during the day alike, it is simply indescribable. If you would like to connect feasting your eyes on the vista before you with teasing your taste buds, then the Citadella Panoráma Restaurant or the Búsuló Juhász Restaurant is the perfect choice.
We have good news for those who love heights, the János Hill (János-hegy), which is also in the area of Budapest, is 527m above sea level, and the Elizabeth Lookout Tower (Erzsébet kilátó) is on its top. You can get to the overlook with the help of chairlift, child train, but you can get there with a half an hour walk from the Normafa as well. The chairlift is an elevator with a funicular (suspension railway), travelling with which from the capital the panorama keeps renewing itself. The children’s train is a traffic spectacle on which children are on duty and go from the Széchenyi-mountain to Hűvösvölgy. Such spectacles are along its tracks like the Bátori cave (Bátori-barlang), the Budakeszi Wildlife Park (Budakeszi Vadaspark), or the Csillebérc Adventure Park (Csillebérci Kalandpálya). Normafa is a popular hiking and skiing destination, part of the Buda Environmental Protection Region. The clearing offers a free view of the city and the inner Buda mountain range.
There are several monuments, museums, churches and squares in Budapest worth visiting if you wish to learn about the history of the city and of the Hungarian nation. Besides the Hungarian National Gallery, the Budapest Historical Museum and the Matthias Church which were mentioned above the Basilica of Szent István (Szent István Bazilika), the Hungarian National Museum (Magyar Nemzeti Múzeum), the Museum of Applied Arts (Iparművészeti Múzeum), the Museum of Transportation (Közlekedési Múzeum), the Hungarian Railway History Park (Magyar Vasúttörténeti Park), the House of Terror (Terror Háza), the Gresham Palace (Gresham-palota) or the Dohány street synagogue (Dohány utcai zsinagóga) can be good choices.
The Városliget is home to, among others, the Hungarian Museum of Folklore (Magyar Néprajzi Múzeum) built next to the Heroes’s Square (Hősök tere), the Vajdahunyad Castle (Vajdahunyad vára), the Hungarian Museum of Agriculture (Magyar Mezőgazdasági Múzeum), the Városliget boating lake, the Széchenyi Thermal Bath and Swimming Pool (Széchenyi Gyógyfürdő és Uszoda), the Budapest Zoo & Botanical Garden (Fővárosi Állat- és Növénykert) and the Capital Circus of Budapest (Fővárosi Nagycirkusz). The Városliget is connected to the inner city by Andrássy street. Andrássy street (Andrássy út) is a boulevard more than 2 km long, the Millennium Underground Railway goes under it, and on its two sides such spectacles can be found like the Hungarian State Opera (Magyar Állami Operaház), the Operetta Theatre (Operettszínház), the House of Terror (Terror Háza), the Miniversum or Liszt Ferenc square, Jókai square, and the “Pest Broadway” (Nagymező street) as part of the popular theatre and entertainment quarter (theatres, restaurants, entertainment venues). Miniversum is a gigantic model table of 300 square meters in constant movement, rich in detail, on which the landscape of Hungary, Austria and Germany come alive in 1:87 reduction size. You can see the spectacles of several towns on the table, and you can see the everyday life of the locals as well: around the buildings, in the parks, at the lakes, and in the mountains swimming people, couples walking together, old ladies walking dogs, fishermen, boatmen, farmers, construction workers, wounded people, policemen, firemen, young kids skating in half-pipes can be seen, basically everything you can imagine in a town or around it.
If you like the world of plants and animals then, besides visiting the Budapest Zoo & Botanical Garden it is worth to pay a visit to the indoors Tropicarium as well, where thousands of land and water animals can be seen up close. The thematic rooms provide an overall image of the wildlife of the rainforests, the oceans and Hungary as well.
If you wish to be closer to nature, go out to the Népliget, to the Margit island, the Óbudai island or have a trip to the Szentendrei island. The Margit island or Margaret island (Margitsziget) is one of the most popular place, not only for tourists but for Budapest residents as well. Among others huge parks, clearings, music fountains, restaurants, cafés, entertainment venues, hotels, outdoors theatre, baths (Palatinus Beach, Hajós Alfréd Swimmingpool) can be found on the island. The island can be jogged around on a constructed running course, but you can ride a bicycle, walk, do outdoors sports or simply lie in the grass. No cars can enter the island so the air is perfectly clear, Margit island is a paradise in all aspects in the middle of the bustling city.
Budapest is also rich in thermal and beach baths, among its thermal baths (open all year round) are the Dagály, the Dandár, the Gellért, the Király, the Lukács, the Rudas, the Paskál and the Széchenyi thermal bath, and among its beach baths are (seasonally open) the Csillaghegyi, the Palatinus, the Pünkösdfürdői and the Római beach bath.

It is characteristic of Budapest that if it is about gastronomy, shopping, festivals, concerts, ruin pubs, or other entertainment options (English language escape games, shooting, spelunking, adventure courses) then the inventory of the city seems endless. Long line of excellent restaurants awaits you with delicious meals with indoors rooms and open terraces, for example in Ráday street, Liszt Ferenc square, Gozsdu Courtyard (Gozsdu udvar). For shopping the best choice is Westend City Center, the Árkád, the Allee or the Aréna Pláza, but you can find several malls in the inner city and the famous Váci street (Váci utca) and Vörösmarty square must also be mentioned. The bustling city does not go silent even at night, the inner city offers an abundance of ruin pubs, restaurants, cafés, discos, and other entertainment venues (like bowling, billiard, darts, table soccer, movie, dance nights, shows). Deák square and the Gozsdu yard can be considered the center of nightlife (the party district) but when it comes to concerts, Budapest Park wins (seasonally).
