HUNGARY

1100 years in the heart of Europe

Hungary is situated in Central Europe at approximately an equal distance from the Equator and the North Pole. Almost two thirds of its territory consists of fertile plains no more than 200 metres above sea level. Our country can be divided into three larger regions: Transdanubia, the Great Plain and Northern Hungary. Europe’s second longest river, the Danube flows through this country. The Tisza is another long river and Lake Balaton is the second largest freshwater lake in Central and Western Europe.

On the north Hungary is bordered by Slovakia, on the north-east by the Ukraine, on the east Romania, on the south by Serbia, Croatia and Slovenia while on the west the country borders onAustria.

The official language of Hungary is Hungarian, but quite a few other languages are spoken as native languages by the several ethnic minorities living near the country’s borders.

The Weather of Hungary

Hungary’s climate is temperate, and the country can be divided into three climatic zones: Mediterranean in the south, Continental in the east, and Atlantic in the west. In Southern Transdanubia, summers are long and winters are mild and wet. The Great Plain has the most extreme seasonal differences, with cold, windy winters and hot, usually dry summers. In Budapest and Western Transdanubia summers can be very hot; winters are relatively short and often cloudy, although sometimes they can be brilliantly sunny. January is the coldest month, getting down somewhere around -2°C (28.4°F), and July the hottest, hovering around 28°C (82.4°F).

Something about Romania

Romania is the largest country in southeastern Europe and the twelfth-largest in Europe. Its terrain is distributed roughly equally between mountainous, hilly and lowland territories. The Carpathian Mountains dominate the center of Romania and their highest peak is Moldoveanu (2544m). In south-central Romania, the Carpathians sweeten into hills, towards the Baragan Plains. Romania's geographical diversity has led to an accompanying diversity of flora and fauna. There are many protected areas in Romania such as Danube Delta Reserve Biosphere, Retezat National Park and Rodna National Park. Owing to its distance from the open sea, Romania has a moderate continental climate. The official language of Romania is Romanian, an Eastern Romance language related to Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese and Catalan. Bucharest is the capital and the largest city in Romania. Tourism focuses on the country's natural landscapes and its rich history.

The harmony of the relief makes Romania one of the most beautiful places in Europe. The Carpathians Mountains cover over a third of the country's territory. They are of medium height but with extremely scenic landscapes that include gorges and defiles, carves, glacial lakes, megalithic stones and waterfalls. In the southeast of Romania the natural border is formed by the Danube over a distance of 1,075 km only to divide, before flowing into the Black Sea, into 3 braches that make up one of the most charming deltas in the world. Banat is a western region with nice resorts and its capital is Timisoara, a city situated on the Bega River. Moldova's lands have the quality of fine poetry with its hills, lakes and woods admirably described by the national poet Mihai Eminescu, born in Ipotesti. Oltenia is a region of religious monuments with art and architecture of great value. Muntenia's relief resembles an amphitheatre and it delights the tourists mainly by the beautiful Prahova Valley.

BULGARIA

Located in the south-east of the Balkan Peninsula, Bulgaria borders Romania to the North, the Black Sea to the East, Turkey and Greece to the South, Serbia & Montenegro and Macedonia to the West. The river Danube forms the country's northern frontier and offers quick access to Central Europe. A crossroads location between Europe and Asia facilitates transport flows through the country. 

Bulgaria is a beautiful sunny country, small in size but rich in ancient culture, scenic splendour, friendly people and old-fashioned warmth and hospitality. In spite of its relatively small territory (110 912 sq km), the country has various landscape and nature - a sea with a 380 km. long coastal strip and golden sand beaches (110 km), 16 mountains with their own characteristic features, shelters valleys and high plateaus, over 550 curative mineral springs, dozen of unique natural phenomena and 2000 thrilling caves, a healthy climate and diverse flora and fauna. 

The Bulgarian lands have rich and most diverse cultural heritage. Inhabited since prehistoric times, they keep lasting traces from different ages with rich traditions. Their location on a crossroads explains the intertwining, mixing, the mutual influences of the culture, mores, and religions of tribes and peoples, having lived and crisscrossed the region. Invaluable is the cultural and historical heritage of ancient Thracians, Greeks, Romans, of generations of Bulgarians leaving through their achievements intriguing and useful information about their lifestyle, traditions and their spiritual enlightenment. Many of the cultural monuments in Bulgaria are listed under the protection of UNESCO's World Heritage List. We are proud of our heritage and feel that it rightfully deserves its place in the diversity of European cultures. One curious Bulgarian contribution to European cultural diversity is the Cyrillic alphabet - now one of the three official EU alphabets. Bulgaria has rich folklore traditions. Folk dances, music, national costumes and traditional rituals do have an important place in our life.
