This region embraces almost every type of Hungarian landscape. On the banks of the Danube, Dráva and the Mura, which flow on the eastern and southern frontier of the region, there are plains similar to the Great Hungarian Plain. Rolling hills are the most characteristic elements of the gentle Pannonian landscape. They create the typical Transdanubian panorama with their gentle slopes covered with forests and broken up with valleys. The two mountain "islands" of the region, the Mecsek and the mountain of Villány, are favourite tourist destinations as they preserve protected geological and botanical rarities.

Central Transdanubia: The region stretches from the Danube to Lake Balaton with the enchanting countryside of the ancient block-mountain range of Transdanubia in the northwest, divided here into the Gerecse, the Vértes and the Bakony Hills. As we journey through the hills we can admire the splendid natural treasures and historic monuments, as well as small villages nestling in the valleys. River valleys, low basins, and gently rolling hilly areas make up the countryside, so varied in its geographical and climatic attributes, history and population. Hungarian National Tourist Office Central Danubien Regional Marketing Directorate: Accomodations, gastronomy, winetourism, villagetourism, sights, horse-riding, ecotourism. The site is also available in Slovak language.
Northern Hungary: If we stop at the highest peak of Hungary, at the 1014-meter high Kékestető and we look down on the land below us, we can see a wonderful view. Mountain peaks covered with forests line up as far as the horizon and basins eroded by rivers lie among them. We seem to see rows of wine-plants on the gentle slopes and the steeples glimmering through the distance indicate the workmanship of men.

The North Plains: The picturesque beauty of the rivers, the table-top smoothness of the open plains, the green, marshy, flat nature preserves, the arboretums filled with bountiful, lush plant life - all this will you find in the North Plains. At the same time, you will find Roman-era small churches replete with beautiful belfries, as well as baroque churches which break towards the sky. 5-star hotels or smart little peasant houses with the traditional Hungarian hospitality are here for those who come from near or far.

Lake Tisza: A few dacades ago people had an extraordinary idea, and conjured up a lake right in the middle of the steppe, the Great Hungarian Plain. This extraordinary area of 127 square kms, created by damming the River Tisza, was given the name Lake Tisza. We rightly called it extraordinary because it is not even strictly speakin a lake, because of the river current that flows through it. At some spots, where we see the sailboats and windsurfers skimming over the choppy waters, or the colourful cavalcade of guesthouses and restaurants, or when we hear the merry hubbub of bathers, we could imagine ourselves at a smaller brother of the Balaton. Homepage of the Lake Tisza Regional Tourist Project Office: 7 good reasons for visiting Lake Tisza, eco-tourism, fishing, holiday on the beach, thermal baths and spas, bicycle tourism, horse-riding, village tourism, ideas for adventures.

The area between the rivers Danube and Tisza and the land surrounding the Körös rivers offer several well-developed holiday resorts (such as Mártély, Szanazug, the inlet of the River Körös at Csongrád, etc.), where you will enjoy good quality services and aquatic sport opportunities.
