No other capital city in the world has as many thermal baths as Budapest. First the Romans and later the Turks used baths built on thermal springs here, and even today, going to baths is a part of the particular Budapest lifestyle. Everyone in Budapest has his or her favourite baths: some prefer the elegant Gellért, while others swear by the Rudas, known for its Turkish pools. The Veli Bej and the Dandár, with their family-oriented atmosphere, are perfect for long conversations.

Then we continue to Szentendre , the charming town which is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country, the closest to the capital.
Optional: wine tasting program at the Szentendre Wine Museum.

Esztergom, the first capital of Hungary, the cradle of the Hungarian state and the Hungarian church, is located in the western gateway of the Danube bend, in the embrace of the Pilis and Visegrád Hills. Founded in 973, the main sights of the city are the 100−metre-high main cathedral (Esztergom Basilica) and the royal castle on Castle Hill. The museums and exhibitions in these buildings tell the story of many important periods of Hungarian history, as well as the history of the Hungarian Roman Catholic Church in the main cathedral.

Visegrád is a popular destination for domestic and international tourism, located in one of the country's most visited resorts, at the bend of the Danube. The papal nuncio called Visegrad (known since 1002) «Earthly paradise», admiring the beauty of the place and the splendor of the castle of King Mathias. Today the castle serves as a venue for knights' tournaments.
The view from the windows of the citadel is magnificent. And in Solomon's Tower on the banks of the Danube from 1462 to 1474, the Wallachian leader Vlad Tepes, nicknamed Dracula, was imprisoned.

At the end of the 17th century, Serbs who fled the Turkish invasion settled on the right bank of the Danube. They gradually rebuilt the settlement in their own style, in a baroque Mediterranean style, and erected 6 orthodox churches, more than in the whole of Hungary.
Later, most of the Serbs returned to their homeland, leaving behind a unique town with narrow streets, colorful Baroque facades and tiled roofs. In the 20s of the 20th century, Szentendre was graced by artists, turning it into the artistic capital of Hungary. Here, in its many galleries and museums, you can see works by former and current inhabitants of the colony.
In Szentendre there is a National Wine Museum. The Museum was opened in 1993, the nearly 650−square meter cellar system of antique atmosphere assures gentle climate throughout the year giving space for the museum, the tasting street and the wine shop.
The museum introduces the development of the Hungarian grapes and wine culture. Experts outline the characteristics of the Hungarian wine-growing regions in different languages.

During this excursion we visit the Tihany peninsula with Tihany Abbey and the spa town of Balatonfured.

Lake Balaton, the largest lake in Central Europe, is a dominant feature of Hungary's hydrography. Its easily warmed, shallow waters make it ideal for swimming and sports, its fauna is extremely rich and its landscape of diverse volcanic cones is unique in many ways.

Balaton has a strongly elongated shape from southwest to northeast. The southern shore is mostly flat; there are several shallow bays on the north and one large peninsula, Tihany. The tip of the peninsula is separated from the opposite shore by only 1.2 kilometres, the narrowest point on Lake Balaton.

The Tihany peninsula is a jewel in the middle of the Hungarian sea. The most famous attractions are Tihany Abbey and the ancient lavender grove, the legendary Echo Hill.
The surface of the volcanic peninsula is dotted with limestone cones formed by geysers. Thanks to its special climate and two drainless lakes, the peninsula is home to many rare species of flora and fauna, so it was declared a nature reserve in 1952 — the first in Hungary. Not only the beauty of the landscape, but also the magical atmosphere and historical monuments of the village make Tihany attractive to tourists

Balatonfüred is a small town surrounded by hills on the north shore of Lake Balaton. The geographical landscape is the first thing that catches your eye: the gentle mountains in the north and the lake in the south, which for centuries has exuded a majestic Pannonian serenity. It is an ancient settlement, inhabited since Roman times, where relics of the past can be found at every turn. Ancient quarters, ancient buildings, churches, charming vineyards, parks and old trees are all messages for modern man.
