Hungary. Our home country. And the country where we’ve spent most of our lives. Growing up in the Southeastern part of Hungary, we’ve moved to Budapest more than 3 years ago. Despite of this, we still feel there are lots of things to explore here, and it’s a city one can never get bored of. We didn’t always like Budapest – it’s a long story -, but nowadays we think it’s one of the coolest cities in Europe and we’re lucky to call it home.

And it offers exciting events from music festivals in summer to Christmas markets in winter. (Make sure you check back here often as we are going to write about Budapest a lot.)

We’ve written a blog post series to introduce you to seven charming cities of our home country. They show you another face of Hungary, and let us assure you it’s a pretty face:

Join us as we explore them, and we’ll show you their unique beauties:
