Welcome to the country that gave us Liszt, Bartók, Nobel Prize-winning writer Imre Kertész and goulash. Throughout the Republic of Hungary you can check out the historic, such as Heroes' Square, join the crowd at Pécs' bustling Main Square or learn more about such village customs as watering at Easter (which doesn't involve plants at all, but boys watering girls in a ritualistic attempt to make the girls bloom throughout the year).
The capital city Budapest is the new Prague — or so they say. The City of Spas is even less expensive and with fewer ex-pats than its Czech counterpart. It's also the site of the Buda Castle, the National Museum, Bauhaus architecture, a major stretch of the Danube River and allegedly more shopping centers than any other city in Europe.
