Taste of Hungary - 5 day farm visit, a real AgroTourism experience

AgroTourism is a fast growing activity in the country. Since Hungary is an EU member, farmers from EU countries might be interested to see, how their Hungarian friends are doing, what is the real situation in the Hungarian agriculture. Well, you can take advantage of the invitation of AgroTourism Team and enjoy Hungarian farmers' hospitality, cottage accommodation, food, wine, eco-tourism, meeting with farmers and many more. Look at the following suggestion:

Day 1: Arrival (by air or bus, or even by car)

Visit the Hungarian Agricultural Museum: The biggest agricultural museum of Europe was founded in the Vajdahunyad Castle of the City Park, Budapest. The building itself is unique; too, for its architect Ignác Alpár (his statue is seen on the way leading to the entrance) merged various styles by using single parts of significant buildings found in Hungary at the time. The building had originally been built for the Millennium Exhibition and has given place for the Museum of Hungarian Agriculture (founded in 1896) since 1897. The building is divided into three different parts - Romanesque, Gothic, and Renaissance-Baroque elements. Opposite to the lake-entrance there is a statue of the famous notary public (Anonymus) of Béla 3rd, made by sculptor.

Our ancestors arrived to the Carpathean basin at the end of the 9th century as a people dealing with land cultivation and animal husbandry. We can infer to to their farming and daily life through relics found on archaeological excavations.

Travel to Kozard, Nograd county: Kozard is lovely small village with less than 300 inhabitants, at the Cserhat mountains, just 80 km North/North-East from Budapest. The village is first mentioned in the 14th century. In the past, the area was famous fruit and wine producer, but nowdays vinyards are abandoned. However, new agri-enterpreneurs are redeveloping fruit plantations as well as "green food and livestock production". The new orientation is village/agro-and eco-tourism, and participation in fruit handling.

Accommodation in Village Houses: Csipkehaz, Sunshine House, Wildflower Guestrooms, Kodak House, Kozard Recently renovated private houses, bringing back traditional village family house construction style, but equipped with all comfort for tourists. The project is one of the prize-winner of the regional development authority.
