As one of the oldest countries in Europe, Hungary boasts a rich cultural heritage which bridges the gap between its European charm and historical Soviet influence. Long-known as the first communist-bloc country to open its borders with Western Europe, Hungary is now admired by many around the globe for its unique farmer markets, countless thermal springs, and exquisite shopping and dining experiences. With nearly 10 million inhabitants, this ancient nation has finally redeemed its place on the map as an exceptional place to live, and a unique destination to visit.
