DID YOU KNOW
- If you prefer a bit more of R&R, Hungary is home to 1,500 thermal springs and over 400 public baths.
- Hungary is one of the oldest countries in Europe, founded in 895.
- If you find yourself in a bar, don’t clink your beer glasses together when you ‘cheers’. This dates back to the 1848 revolution when Austrians celebrated the Hungarians’ defeat by clinking their beers together. Instead, simply raise your glass, look everyone in the eye, and say “Egészségedre” – you may need to practice the pronunciation on that one.
