Bordered by no fewer than seven countries, Hungary is a fantastic and increasingly popular Eastern European destination. English is widely spoken here and service levels are high with a friendly welcome to all. As well as traditional souvenirs such as some beautiful embroidery pieces, make sure you seek out some of the superb smoked cheeses and sausages. And of course no trip to Hungary would be complete without taking back some Hungarian paprika! Speaking of which, Hungary's national dish of goulash is an essential meal to keep you going whilst wandering around. Most Hungarian restaurants also feature goose on their menus, often accompanied by peppers, pickles and potatoes. Hungarian wines and beers are world renowned, but for something a little more traditional, try the Pálinka, a brandy-like drink distilled from various arboreal fruits. So why not fly with Austrian Airlines to Hungary soon and experience this wonderful country first hand?
