The long weekend of October 23 and fall break can be a good time for a shorter trip.
You can also discover beautiful places in our surroundings, and you do not necessarily have to travel abroad – said Robert Richard Kiss, Prima Primisima award-winning tourism journalist, on the Petőfi TV program. According to the expert, fall is obviously a good time for food festivals, but during the long weekend and fall break, there will be many other events to choose from. One such program is “Night of Horror”, the largest horror festival in Europe, which will take place in Kisvarda, with live actors, on October 27, 28 and 31.
On the long weekend of October 23, the lineup will be colorful across the country. In Hortobágy and Bugaco, there will be regular three-day programs, in Szentendre Skanzen they will hold a special themed weekend, and at Lake Tisza Ecocentrum in Poroszló, you can spot the wildlife of Tisza. In addition, many museums await visitors with free opening hours on weekends.
And those who choose comfort need not worry even if the weather is not suitable. The most popular places are around Lake Balaton, Sarvar, Hévíz, Hajdúszoboszlo and Debrecen. There is a range to suit all needs, from very cheap accommodation to luxurious five-star accommodation. The specialist singled out the Vinifera Hotel in Balatonfüred, which was designed under the influence of wine, but in addition to gastronomy, it offers the perfect relaxation for all those who want to relax and enjoy wellness. Lake Balaton is nearby, and the view of Tihany Monastery is fantastic from a few rooms, but that’s all just an explanation, as you don’t even have to leave the hotel for a truly cloudless holiday.
Foreigners mainly target Budapest and Lake Balaton, but northeastern Hungary is also very popular. The Sátoraljaújhely adventure park, the fascinating historical heritage and the wine collection of Eger attract foreigners like a magnet, and many people come to Sopron from Austria to relax. Most tourists still come from Germany, followed by the United Kingdom.
