Hungary

Let me present you Hungary.
I'll use the NUTS-2 divisions in presenting my country,of which we have 7.
These are:
-Közép-Magyaroszág(Central Hungary)
-Közép-Dunántúl(Central Transdanubia)
-Nyugat-Dunántúl(Western Transdanubia)
-Dél-dunántúl(Southern Transdanubia)
-Észak-Magyarország(Northern Hungary)
-Észak-Alföld(Northern Great Plain)
-Dél-Alföld(Southern Great Plain)

Közép-Magyarország
It is the centre of the country,with Budapest in it. It is the most developed part of Hungary,with 28%
of the population of Hungary living in it. The region is at the border of the Great Plain and the Transdanubian Mountains.

In the upper pic, Pest is the side opposite the Danube(so on the farther side of the river). Buda is the side from where the pic was made,and has the castle on the Castle Hill.
In this pic,Buda is the farther side.

Budapest seems to be one of the "in" city break destinations at the moment, from the pictures I can see why, very nice!

Nice pics . have been many time s to Budapest and once in Pecs .
The only problem I had was the language because not so many people speak English , older ones speak some German , and Hungarian is totaly understandable language for foreigners , because it is not related to any other language .
