Great shopping–

Aside from the typical souvenirs, local artisans produce many fine items–ceramics, porcelain, leather goods, needlework, among others.

My favorite place for shopping is along Budapest’s Vaci street and in the Great Market Hall. The prices are reasonable and all items are Hungarian –made products.

If you are craving a modern shopping mall, Budapest has several that are even more modern than many in the US.

Getting around– In Budapest you won’t need a rental car—in fact, please don’t even think of getting one.  Public transportation is excellent and very cheap.

Let’s not forget the wines. Hungary has been a major wine producer for centuries. Even in the smallest villages, almost everyone produces wine. Some areas of Hungary such as Villany, Balaton, Tokaj are producing world class wines shipped all over the world. The wines of each area have a distinct character reflecting the climate and topography of the area.

Hungary also produces superior champagnes (sparkling wines). The wine regions provide plenty of tasting opportunities and often feature local foods to accompany them.

Getting away from the cities–Lake Balaton is a major resort area with fishing and boating as primary activities.  Visitors from all over Europe flock to the Balaton for summer vacations.  Sailing, windsurfing and of course swimming are available.P1090029

Is Hungary expensive?  NO!  By American standards, your dollar will go far in providing you with first class accommodations, travel arrangements, restaurants, and excursions.  Hungary is one of the best deals today for a spectacular, yet inexpensive vacation.  So, don’t wait!
