Camping in Hungary
39 in Hungary
Situated at the heart of Europe, Hungary has a very distinct identity that it maintains fiercely. Bordered by no fewer than seven countries, it has been at the centre of political upheaval throughout its history, but despite this its rich heritage and customs continue to permeate its culture, particularly on festival days.
A camping holiday in Hungary is likely to take you to Lake Balaton, Central Europe’s largest lake and a popular destination for tourists. The silky green waters are ideal for water sports and the southern shores are a great place to bathe. The thermal lake at Hévíz, to the west of Lake Balaton, is the second largest hot water lake in the world, with a temperature of 32oC and soothing properties. To the north is Badacsony, an extinct volcano with fossilised lava columns and vineyards on its slopes.
A festival is never far away when you’re camping in Hungary. Budapest has a range of events all year round, with diverse celebrations occurring between May and September. Of particular cultural interest are the Danube Carnival taking place in June, which features traditional Hungarian folk dancers and a parade, and the Vajdahunyadvár Summer Festival, which takes place in July and August and presents classical music, swing and traditional Hungarian gypsy music.
