Did you know Hungary’s nickname is “land of waters”, as it holds the largest lake in Europe? It is also crossed by mighty rivers, which divide and define its regions. Hungary is bordered by Austria, Slovakia, Ukraine, Romania, Serbia and Croatia; its capital is Budapest, one of the most vibrant cities in Europe!
Hungary is also known for the many cultural traditions and regional customs that have developed and kept alive over hundreds of years in all aspects of everyday life: music, dance, clothing, décor and cuisine.
Hungarian cuisine is known for its prominence of meat and the number of dishes cooked over open fire. One of the most popular dishes is Goulash, a hearty stew of meat and vegetables seasoned with paprika and other spices.
