The Hotel Palazzo Zichy was a superb hotel. It could not be bettered!
Mr M Mitchell
Any holiday to Hungary should include a visit to one of its wineries to taste not only the internationally renowned deep fruity red ‘Bulls Blood’ wine and the thick, syrupy amber Tokaj dessert wine, but also many other lesser known varieties of red and white wines alike. Hungary has always been blessed with the perfect climate and soil for viticulture and wine making. A wide variety of soil types and sunshine in abundance have made Hungary an important wine making region that dates back to the Celts in the 3rd century A.D.
Hungary holidays are packed with plenty to do from bird-watching, cycling and horse riding to relaxing in thermal spas. Lake Balaton is a must but don’t neglect the other towns and regions off the beaten track, such as the medieval town of Sopron, close to the Austrian border or one of the lesser-known villages in the many wine-growing regions.
With a rich and varied culture, classical notes from composers such as Béla Bartók and Franz Liszt live in harmony with traditional gypsy rhapsodies and contemporary beats in Hungary’s capital city, Budapest. From an imposing castle, view the romantic Danube River, as it dramatically splits the city in two or enjoy comfort food at its best in a cosy restaurant with the smell of rustic paprika-infused goulash filling the air.
