Hungary is generally a safe place and easy to find all the places you are looking for, especially that I summarized all important facts you need to know. You can choose your apartment from a wide variety of options (see Hotels and Airbnb).
If you come in the summer It’s worth visiting Lake Balaton, the biggest lake in Central Europe, that we usually call the Hungarian sea. But if you stay at Budapest you can still enjoy our thermal spas (most famous is Széchényi or Gellért Thermal Spa), because Budapest has the highest number of thermal springs and Hungary has public bathing practices that go back to Roman times and hundreds of different activity options.
Some facts that good to know about Hungary:
• Hungary is one of the oldest countries in Europe. It was founded in A.D. 896, before France, Germany or England.
• The Hungarian Parliament is the 3rd largest parliament building in the world. It has 691 rooms, 20 kilometers of stairs and 40 kilograms of 23-carat gold was used on its interior decoration. It is also the largest building in Hungary.
• Budapest was almost named Pestbuda. Budapest was born when three cities, Buda, Pest and Óbuda (Old Buda) were united, and at first the founders had different ideas about what they should name the new city.
• The mummified right hand of Saint Stephen, the first king of Hungary is displayed in the Saint Stephen Basilica in Budapest.
• Touching the pen of the statue of Anonymus in Budapest's City Park will, legend has it, bless you with great writing abilities.
• Hungary is home to the world’s first official wine region.
• It is considered rude to clink your beer glasses, because while the 13 Martyrs revolution-ary leaders were being executed, Austrian soldiers were drinking beer and arrogantly clinking their beer mugs together in celebration of Hungary's defeat.
• Water polo is a national sport and the world’s best female chess champion is Hungarian.
• Budapest has continental Europe’s oldest metro and it is also the second oldest electrical-ly operated underground railway in the world (started operating in 1896).
• Budapest has the second largest synagogue in the world.
• Our language is in the top 10 of most difficult languages in the world, our alphabet has 44 letters and its only related to Finnish and Estonian. And we have two words for the color ‘red’?
The two words are ‘piros’ and ‘vörös’. They can mean the same exact shade of the red color and still, for some reason, we don’t normally use both of them interchangeably with all the words. Blood is normally ‘vörös’, not ‘piros’. Wine is also ‘vörös’, not ‘piros’. A ball is normally ‘piros’ and not ‘vörös’. An apple is also ‘piros’, not ‘vörös’. But a rose can be ‘pi-ros’ and ‘vörös’ as well.
