Hungary showcases its history, culinary, nature and wellness offerings

TORONTO — The Hungarian Tourism Agency took over The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto yesterday for a cocktail and dinner presentation on the virtues of this classically European destination.

Guests of the Hungarian Tourism Agency were treated to a preview of Hungary’s new tourism attractions and priorities for 2019 in a special presentation by Zsuzanna Sarmon and trade representatives including Valér Palkovits, Hungary’s Consul General.

“Today we invite you to discover Hungary’s warm atmosphere with its dynamic heritage. Hungary is not only a beautiful country, it’s a safe and livable place with very hospitable people,” says Palkovits.

Located in Central Europe, Hungary spans 93,030 square kilometres in the Carpathian Basin, bordering Austria, Slovenia and Croatia. The country’s rich cityscapes are defined by anachronistic architectural landmarks and grand neoclassical buildings, lending the destination a charming historic quality.

Highlighted was Hungary’s proud culinary legacy, underscoring its culture of hospitality and rich victual production through world-renowned dishes such as papikrash

Special attention was allotted to the Tokaj region – established by royal decree in 1757 – where the confluence of a temperate climate and minerally-rich soils produce some of Europe’s most prestigious sweet wines.

Illustrating Hungary’s dynamic appeal as a destination for both adventure and relaxation, natural wonders were emphasized. Hungary’s Lake Balaton is the largest lake in central Europe and a popular tourist attraction, with warm waters conducive to bathing and sailing and a beautiful surrounding countryside renowned for producing excellent vintages.

Over the last decade or so, Hungary has become an increasingly popular destination in the growing sector of wellness travel. Hungary holds the fifth largest thermal water reserve in the world, boasting more than 1,400 springs, 200 thermal baths and over 40 modern health spa hotels.

The Hungarian Tourism Agency capped off the night of networking with an announcement that Hungary is investing more in its water-based attractions, with a special mention of the famous ‘cave bath’ in tourist-favourite Miskolctapolca.

Whether travellers choose to immerse themselves in the bustling metropolis of Budapest or take in the sights along the Danube, they’ll find Hungary to be a truly unique place to visit right in the heart of Europe.
