    What I would like to talking about.First of all some general information. Next, why so many people came to Hungary, I mean more than 40 million visitors chose Hungary last year and before as wellaccording to the Hungarian Central Statistic Office . Lets look for the reasons why.. *So where we are exactly? Situated in the Carpathian basin, in the heart of Europe for over 1100 years.Almost 10 million people live here, 1,7 million in our Budapest.Our language is hungarian, our currency is the Forint. 1 Singaporean dollar=appr.175 Forint so, please do not be frightened from the very great numbers.Since 2004 we have been the Member of the EU and in 2007 joined the Schengen area.**Here is our country. As you see we have 7 neighbors and this fact give us opportunity to combine Hungary with other destinations, such as Austria, Czech Republic or Croatia. For example Vienna is 2 hours by car.Hungary has two main rivers (Danube and Tisza) and Central Europes largest lake the Balaton.The climate is continental, with four seasons, the hottest month are June, July and August when the daytime temperature can reach 30s celsius. The coldest month is January with the average temperature of just below zero and regular snowfalls.You can find 11 national parks all over the country.Most of the territory is flatland. The highest point is 1,014 m above sea level. As we joined Shengen area, you do not need a VISA. You can reach our country within 15 hours by the biggest airlines, via almost every major European hub. An average ticket appr. 1000 USD.

    Number of operating public accommodation establishment = mkd kereskedelmi szllsok PAE=kereskedelmi szllshelyTotal hotels2695Available beds at public accommodation establishment= elrhet gyak a ker.szllshelyekenTotal number 278307In the spa hotel category you can get medical treatmens, while wellness hotels are for pampering.International brands are found in Hungary such as Kempinski, Sofitel , Four Seasons,Budha Bar, Corinthia, Hilton, Le Meridien, Marriott, Intercontinental, Novotel are well represented.

    Kempinski in the down town beside the fashion street.In the down town too. The Sofitel.Buddha Bar hotel near the bank of the Danube.Near the Chain Bridge which is more than 150 years old stands the Four Season proudly.Behind you see the biggest cathedral in Budapest.Budapest situated on the banks of the river Danube, (considered as the Pearl of Danube) has two parts, one is on the hill side the other is on plains.How about that view from your hotel room in the Hilton. This is the ruin of a 700 year old monestary inside the hotel.opposite the world 3rd largest parliament in the world.Besides the big International brands, two largest hotel chains in Hungary are Danubius Hotels Group and Accor Group.For combining a spa break and a city break the two members of the Danubius Hotels Group are probably the best option as they are located in the heart of the city on a green island.

    The offer ranges from worldwide hotel chains to individual luxury hotels like Spirit Hotel in Sarvar (west Hungary)Won the best destinatin spa award in 2010.*Ok, we have some very old and well-known luxury hotels, but you can ask me, why I should go to Hungary? First, I would like to show you a short film. A film about what we would like you to feelaway from the hectic everyday life everybody needs to relax..to rechargethe batteries. Not just the mental rechargement but physical as well.The average length of stay from Asia to Hungary is 2, 3 days.I would like to prove that it's worth staying longer.

    Lets take a look at another 6 reasons, why you should visit Hungary.We have lot of spa, intresting culture and architecture. Good shopping possibility, you can have fun, and have a lot of unique programs.*Let me show you some examples how new and old get on well with each other.*What do you think this is? This theater-looking building which is in fact a swimming pool and thermal bath, is the Szechenyi Bath. The very first inhabitants who settled here were the Celts. They called their settlement AK INK, which means Abundant water.So the water has been our treasure for more than 1000 years. Almost 1300 thermal springs are found here.Hungary is very rich in thermal water we can say, that the richest in Europe*

    *The second example of our rich culture and architecture. Royal Palace Probably the most popular attraction on Castle Hill. The first palace built and added onto over 300 years. The building houses three large museums and the National Library. In the backsitutates theMatthias Church and the Fishermans Bastion. In autumn there are always be organised festivals here such as Palinka and sausage Festival, Budapest International Vine festival, Goose liver festival, Sweet days - chocolate and sweets festival.Good picture for the old and new get on well.Vajdahuny castleLook at this very attractive castle in the countryside.ok, but it is not in countryside, this is in the city park in the down town. The idea was to present in one building the different architectural styles which could be found and were used in Hungary. Beside the Vajdahunyad Castle is located an ice rink, opened more than 100 years ago and the largest in Europe. In summer this area is filled up water to create a pond, which is primarily used for boating. Or look at this well decorated building by majolica..what do you think, what is this? You can not imagine.. This is an elephant house in the Budapest Zoo, in the City park too, just a few steps from the vajdahunyad castle. The other strange bulding was built in art nouveau (nuvo) style.. what we use for a .market. The hungarian cuisine use a lot of red pepper and garlic, so this is a place where you can get it.On the first floor there is a very good restaurantThis is a market place.. On the first floor can be found a very good restaurant so called Kitchen spoon restaurant.

    Now speak about shopping..This avenue approximately 2,5 km long, with a many shops, like LV, Burberry, GUCCI and more. Maybe here in Budapestyou can buy cheaper some items from this big brands than in Asia, but I recommend you try to buy a special hungarianfor example.... Or Folkfashion,they use the traditional motives from Kalocsa. After the shopping if you be hungry you can visiting one of our thousands restaurants. We are proud of our 2 Michlen star awarded restaurants, called COSTES and ONIX, where you can taste the famous hungarian cuisine as well or the famous NOBU.
