Tourist is back on track– best locations besides Budapest and Balaton
Following the start of the coronavirus epidemic, the Hungarian government made rebooting tourist a critical objective. And Hungary uses a lot more than Budapest and Lake Balaton!
To avoid the collapse of the tourist sector due to the coronavirus pandemic, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán announced on April 6 a five-point economy defense action plan. Under its third point, the government supplied HUF 600 billion (later on extended by another HUF 150 billion) for, among other things, advancements in tourist, financial investments, restorations and tax exemptions, all aimed at helping the sector, which uses some 400,000 people and creates more than 10 percent of the country’s GDP.
As the number of verified coronavirus cases continues to increase in many nations, in Hungary the variety of active infections keeps stagnating in between 500 and 600 and with appropriate care and adherence to the epidemiological guidelines, it is luckily safe to take a trip in Hungary.
But Hungary is more than just Budapest and Lake Balaton (understood also just as “Balaton”)! Here below, we cover a few of the best locations to visit.
If you like to be around water during the summer season, there are plenty of spots you can check out in Hungary. For instance, Lake Hévíz, Hungary’s special warm-water lake, is the 2nd biggest thermal lake in the world, thanks to which the settlement is among the primary traveler destinations in Hungary. The lake’s healing impact is said to have been understood even to the Romans. Or if you prefer more than simply swimming, visit Szigetköz, the greatest island of the country, where you can go on kayak tours and see remarkable flora and fauna. Another special experience is offered by Miskolctapolca with its special cave bath, hollowed out from hard limestone by water through the centuries, offering an unparalleled experience to shower in a natural indoor swimming pool, complete with thermal water at a pleasant temperature level originating from the depths of the mountain.
For travelers who are more into natural heritage and nature, Hungary has plenty of opportunities. The Nyíregyháza Zoo has more than 5,000 animals from 500 different types, providing the environmental environment in the eastern, less developed area of Hungary. Among the biggest animal parks in Europe, it hosts animal lovers in a stunning oak forest. A various experience can be discovered in Hortobágy and its surrounding national forest. The cultural landscape of the Hortobágy Pusztaconsists of a large location of plains and wetlands and belongs to the UNESCO World Heritage Website. Conventional forms of land use, such as the grazing of domestic animals, have existed in this pastoral society for more than two millennia. For bird enthusiasts, the very best choice is Kis-Balaton, which until the 19th century was really connected to Lake Balaton. Kis-Balaton has such a substantial variety of plants and animals that its natural treasures are safeguarded under the Ramsar Convention.
Lastly, for anybody who has an interest in culture and sightseeing, Hungary has a long list of interesting cities. Pécs waits for visitors with a historical and cultural heritage from the time of the Turkish profession and with the Zsolnay Quarter presenting the world’s finest porcelain producer. Sopron, Civitas Fidelissima (“The The Majority Of Devoted Town”), is a gem at the Austrian border in the northwestern corner of Hungary, with its Renaissance and Baroque architecture, exceptional white wines and a calm environment. Szeged, meanwhile, is a Mediterranean gem on the shore of the Tisza River with a vivid student life, classy boulevards and impressive monoliths– not to mention its popular fish soup.
