Carnivorous people may think that the traditional Hungarian “szalami” is already a nice treat. Try to get one made from “vaddiszno”, from wild boar – and you will taste a touch of that wilderness of the Danube floodplains, where boars still roam in great numbers among Red and Fallow deer.

East of the river, the cattle-grazed Puszta steppe provides some excellent habitats for many birds from Great bustards to hoopoes and rollers. And if you are – due to some reason – on the prowl for a real linguistic challenge in Europe, Hungary will pop up among the top three must-hear destinations anyway. Sziastok!
