Hungary is landlocked in the centre of Europe by no fewer than seven different countries. Budapest, the lively capital, is one of Europe’s most beautiful cities with its laid-back café lifestyle, music scene and numerous cultural festivals. With art and architecture as well as fine embroidery, pottery and paintings, Hungary is a cultural haven.
Harry Houdini, America’s greatest magician, was born in the capital, adding to the cocktail of Western luxury and simple traditions for which Hungary is known.
Golf is broadening its appeal in Hungary and according to the Hungarian Golf Federation there are now fourteen courses across the country, although the majority of these are set within relatively easy reach of the capital, Budapest. Pannonia Golf & Country Club at Alcsútdoboz is the best and Hencse National is worth the excursion south as is Greenfield (formerly Birdland) at Bükfürdõ to the west of the capital. We’ll keep a close eye on golf developments in Hungary over the coming years.
