Hungary, in central Europe, is particularly rich in water. Turkish and Roman influence led to the popularity of mineral spas, including thermal Lake Hévíz. The numerous lakes in Hungary encourage many water-based extreme sports such as wakeboarding, water skiing, kitesurfing and windsurfing.
Budapest, the capital, is a great place for architecture with landmarks from Buda’s medieval Castle Hill and grand neoclassical buildings along Pest’s Andrássy Avenue to the 19th-century Chain Bridge.
