A little Hungary in Canada

Hungary, with its enthralling capital Budapest, is located in Central Europe. It is a medium-sized state and a member of the European Union, with around 10 million inhabitants encased with a deep rich history.

The geography of the country is mainly defined by its two major rivers, the Duna (“Danube”) and the Tisza. The two waterways divide the country into three main areas. Transdanubia is a predominantly hilly region; this part consists of the very eastern stretch of the Alps, the western, the Transdanubian Mountains in the central region, and the Mecsek and Villány mountains in the south. These areas are also particularly famous for their award-winning vineyards.

The Duna-Tisza köze (“between the Duna and Tisza”) and Tiszántúl (“beyond the Tisza”) a recharacterized primarily by the Great Hungarian Plain, Alföld. The northern part of the country is sheltered by the hills of the Carpathians and is also the home of Hungary’s highest peak, the 1014 meters high Kékes. One of the world’s largest thermal lake, called Hévíz, and the largest lake of Central Europe, called Balaton, is the Transdanubian region’s foremost tourist destinations and also among the unique natural beauties of the country.

Hungary has a temperate seasonal climate, which makes the territory excellent for a variety of agricultural activities.  Agriculture has played an important role in the Hungarian economy for more than 1000 year.  Due to the unique and favorable features of the country, all the fruits, vegetables, and animals produced and harvested in Hungary are non GMO and show outstanding quality in regards to international standards.
