As more British tourists visit eastern and central Europe, Hungary is becoming a more popular destination, according to a website.
Encouraged by low-cost flights, visitors are turning to Hungary as a favoured destination because of its history and affordable food report carrentals.co.uk.
"Budapest, Hungary's capital city, tends to attract crowds due to its unique abundance of Roman and Turkish baths, the fact that hotels and restaurant meals are still noticeably cheaper than in most western urban centres," said the website.
The city has seen a boost to its tourism levels with the country's Central Statistical Office (KSH) reporting an eight per cent increase in foreign visitor levels in January and February of this year.
Further statistics from the KSH show that hotel revenue has soared 12.5 per cent to 14.5 billion Hungarian forints.
British travellers will also experience a good exchange rate on their currency. Earlier in the year it was revealed that the Forint had not strengthened as much as other currencies against sterling.
