Culture of a Thousand Years

In its one-thousand-year history Hungary's own traditions have been greatly influenced by both Eastern and Western cultural heritage. The cultural influences of east and west can be seen in the monuments, traditions and everyday life.

The memories of the Roman Empire, the buildings, and baths created during the 150 years of Ottoman rule, the tiny churches and grandiose cathedrals of the Middle Ages, the remains of old fortresses and those magnificent palaces all bear witness to a rich and colourful history through the land. Visit enchanting cities, small towns and villages in the countryside and allow them to capture your imagination. The Hungarian history revives in numerous festivals, where visitors can participate in real time-travelling, and have unforgettable experiences.
