There is no place on earth like Kidney shaped Hungary. If you are travelling to Hungary for a holiday as a family or just a couple there are many things for you to do to make your trip very memorable.
The Danube River
11.6% of the highly celebrated river Danube is shared by Hungary totally splitting Budapest in two. This river is a romantic destination if you are taking a loved one to Hungary for a holiday. There are restaurants on the waterfront for you to dine while you enjoy the river. Although everyone has heard of the Waltz ‘The Blue Danube’, you can rest assured that the Danube River is not blue.
During the day or on a nice warm evening there are bicycle rental merchants where you can hire a bicycle and ride your way from Vienna to Budapest along the riverfront. This is a beautiful way for you to sight see the Danube River of Hungary.
House of Terror
The house of terror is a museum, which lives in the old home of the Hungarian secret police. You will discover a fantastic history there although a little bit of the horror filled side, as people would be taken to this police station to be tortured and interrogated. There were constant screams emanating from the cells there, so the walls were built two times thicker so that they would absorb the screams.
Hospital in the rock
Castle Hill shares part of its history with the ancient network of caves, this attraction in Hungary was opened only very recently. The Cave system was utilized a lot during the Second World War. I believe when Budapest was under attack. On display there is genuine medical equipment and up to 70 wax figures. There is a guided tour of the cave system every half an hour. But if you want a more in-depth and detailed tour then you will find that there is an hour-long ‘full tour‘. When I say full tour, I am talking about 7000 square feet worth of cave. This tour takes you through a Cold War nuclear bunker.
You can be rest assured that there is no shortage of car hires offices in Hungary. There are many styles of car for you to hire. Ranging from an economy 2 door compact cars, to five door compact cars, to Station wagons, 7-seated Cars, minibuses, SUV, luxury cars even chauffeur driven cars. Some of the car hire companies will even hire you a motor home if you are planning to tour the fantastic scenery surrounding Hungary.
The car hire will arrange to deliver your car to the airport for your collection if you have arrived by airplane. It is advisable to book your car hire before you travel, as you do not want to arrive hoping to hire a certain style of the car only to find that they are all out on hire. Hiring a car makes it easier for you to travel and see the sights where you want and when you want and how you want.
