15 Wonderful Scenes From Hungary (Outside Of Budapest)

Hungary is our home. We’ve grown up here and visited a lot of places in our country as kids, with our school or our family. We still travel a lot in Hungary. We like exploring historical towns, museums and castles, or hiking in the hills and mountains. They are all perfect weekend getaways for us from Budapest. And they can be so pretty! We collected here some of the most wonderful scenes from our travels in Hungary – outside of Budapest this time.

I wouldn’t say they are instagrammable destinations. Though they might be. But they could also be more than just “stop there, take that (#instaworthy) picture, go on” destinations. They let you experience another face of Hungary. The countryside. Green. Peaceful. Pretty. Rich in history and culture. Here, get a taste of it…
