Discover Romania’s time-honored traditions as you explore Transylvania, a region best known to Westerners as the home of Count Dracula.
From the World Heritage site of Budapest to the banks of aquamarine Lake Balaton, Hungary is a treasure trove of history, cuisine, and culture. Spend time in beloved Budapest, “Queen of the Danube,” and stroll along tree-lined boulevards and over regal bridges en route to Turkish-era bathhouses, the Buda Castle Quarter, and Andrássy Avenue’s architectural masterpieces. Among its many charms, Hungary boasts Central Europe’s largest lake and guests may explore the beech forests along Lake Balaton on hikes through Balaton Uplands National Park—home to rich volcanic soils excellent for viniculture, making a winery stop (and tasting!) an absolute must during any immersive and endlessly fascinating Hungarian adventure.
