UNESCO World Sites
Regions of Hungary
Transdanubia
Transdanubia comprises roughly the western half of Hungary and includes many popular destinations and sights. The Transdanubian Mountains and the Little Hungarian Plain (Kisalföld) make up much of the landscape. Lake Balaton, the second most-popular tourist destination in Hungary after Budapest, is a well-known `fun in the sun` destination. Major cities in Transdanubia include Gyor, Pécs, Székesfehérvár, and Siofok.
Great Hungarian Plain
The Great Hungarian Plain (Alföld) covers a little more than half of the country and most of its eastern and southeastern portions. Rolling hills meet flatlands in areas such as the Tisza River Valley. Szeged, located in the southern portion, is situated on the Tisza River and is home to such points of interest as the iconic Votive Cathedral of Our Lady of Hungary and the University of Szeged, the most prestigious university in Hungary. Debrecen, the principal city of the northern Plain, is the country`s second-largest city, where many key historic moments occurred during the Revolution of 1848 and the quest for Hungarian independence.

Experience & Adventure
Hungarian Cuisine
Hungarian cuisine is very hearty, nourishing, and for the uninitiated, sometimes spicy. Paprika is the national spice, made from red peppers, and is used in gulyas (goulash), the most popular dish in the country. Like goulash, many of the most popular dishes in Hungarian cuisine are soups or stews, such as the fish chowder halaszle, typically served with warm bread. Hungary is also well-known for its dairy industry, and it produces many popular cheeses such as Pannonia cheese. Hungarian cuisine is similar to its Central European counterparts, yet also manages to be distinct in its own right.
