Hungary's National Blue Trail has been selected among National Geographic's best dream tourism destinations of 2020, local media reported here on Friday.
National Geographic picked the planet's 25 most exciting destinations for the year ahead, and Hungary's Blue Trail is among them, major Hungarian media Origo Index and HVG reported.
"Despite its lack of soaring peaks (the highest is 3,327-foot Mount Kekes), Hungary is a dream hiking destination thanks to the country's National Blue Trail," National Geographic said on its Travel website.
Meandering about 700 miles from Irottko Mountain, on the western border with Austria, to the northeastern village of Hollohaza near Slovakia, the Blue Trail (Kektura in Hungarian) is a wonderfully diverse web of paths labeled with white-and-blue-striped waymarkers, read the description on the National Geographic website.
"Originating in 1938 and recognized as Europe's first long-distance trail, it's part of the nearly 6,500-mile European long-distance walking route E4, which begins in Spain and ends (with ferry connections) in Cyprus," it added.
