For most people, Hungary conjures up the picturesque images of the Lanc Hid (Chain Bridge) by night in the country’s capitol of Budapest. Or maybe even Attila the Hun. But for me, Hungary has a unique and special spot in my heart, as I lived in the country for more than a decade. With a complicated language, and a very complicated people, Magyarorszag is one of the few countries in the world with such a convoluted (and relatively vague) history and very small geography. But amid the pessimism of the populace and the dry, harsh winters, Hungary’s food and sight seeing are some of the most unique and unforgettable one can have while traveling. Here you will find a lengthy list of places to eat, drink and sleep while in the country that says “see ya” for hello, and “hello” for “goodbye”!
