Hungary

No place like Hungary (Magyarország). Located in the heart of Europe, this kidney-shaped country can claim a unique place in the soul of the continent. Those who doubt this should listen to the music of Franz Liszt and Béla Bartók, see the romantic Danube River and dramatically divides Budapest into two or taste of the nation unique (and paprika-infused) cuisine to convince. The impact of Hungary in Europe’s history and development has been much greater than its current size and population would suggest. The Hungarians, who call themselves Magyars, speak a language and form a culture unlike any other in the region – a distinction that has been a source of pride and an obstacle to more than 1100 years.

Hungary is the best place to go into both Central and Eastern Europe. While some of its neighbors can have a spectacular landscape or monuments oldest and most important, Hungary abounds in things to see and do, and those with special interests – fishing, horseback riding, botany, bird watching, biking, hot springs , Jewish culture – is a treasure here. Under the former communist regime, most of the orientation of the government and the money went to Budapest. As a result, foreign visitors rarely ventured beyond this splendid city to the river Danube, except on a day trip to the Danube Bend or Lake Balaton. These sites should be visited, of course, but do not ignore other cities and regions off the beaten track: the Vilagut Tanya (the farm in the world) of the South Flat, ethnically rich northeastern Hungary, the hills south of Transdanubia covered Villány vineyards and traditional Őrségi region in the far west.

The 90 star was not a time for the republic reborn. Its economic development was in limbo and the serious economic problems that affected all aspects of daily life. Fortunately, these days have passed and many are now Hungary, with his intelligent and hardworking people, and rich and vibrant culture, as the star performer and the most interesting destination in the new Europe.

Travel to Bulgaria

travel to bulgariaDuring the early years of the sixth century Slavic tribes settled in present Bulgaria, displacing native to the region of Thrace, although that did not prevent the continuing close contact with the tribes of the descending current Bulgarian population. In the ninth and tenth centuries, became a major European power, when they fought against the Byzantine Empire for control of the Balkans. That meant some defeats Bulgarian armies and the destruction of their status after the assault of the Varangians and attack Byzantine Emperor Basil II in 1018.Tras its restoration in 1185 turned to be a mighty power for two centuries until the fourteenth century was submitted by the Ottoman Empire.

Its tumultuous history has left an important variety of monuments and historic buildings that tourists on their trips Bulgaria appreciated.

The etymology is unclear, but some theories the set to the name of the tribe bulgar, derived from burg, and that means castle in German. The burgarii, by derivation, would that keep the strengths.

The nature of Bulgaria is one of the country’s wealth, as their mountains, have beautiful and dense forests interspersed with lakes where tourists stop to rest. D and the entire set what stands out are the Rhodope Mountains in the current is losing some of its charm as a result of excessive speculation and promoting tourism.

It is also recommended to know Stara Mountains, the Balkan Range, with a less spectacular landscape than Rodopi, it is still beautiful. Besides its passage is almost mandatory if you want to visit the Danube from the center of the country.

Meanwhile, the Black Sea coast is one of the favorite places for tourists. Maybe that will rest some of its charm, as it is full of resorts, souvenir shops and tourist attractions that have so far limited authenticity to the place. The same is true in some cities and towns as Sozopol, although some have been able to find a balance between this sector and the local environment. This is the case of Varna and Balchik that although very touristic, its urban areas are attractive and unpolluted.
