Hungarian Currency:  Hungarian Forint
As well as having arguably Europe's hardest language, Hungary boasts some of the continent's most picturesque plains and awe-inspiring classical central European cities. Despite forming part of the Soviet Eastern bloc during the latter half of the 20th century, Hungary's look and feel as well as culture is much closer aligned to its western neighours with Budapest being a very equal match for a central European weekend city break to Vienna or Prague. If you plan on driving through Hungary, you will be amazed by the variety of the landscape with large rivers criss crossing the country and medieval towns perched atop hilltops. Hungary is particularly known for its thermal waters with Lake Heviz in the foothills of the mountains to the east being the largest thermal lake on the continent.
