Hungary has such a punny name that if you add to its geography, which is basically it existing in a plain surrounded by mountains, it’s a perfect analogy of a bowl. (I’m not sure if I’m constructing this sentence properly. Learned the bowl bit from @geographynow_official ) Being a landlocked country, Hungary has no access to the sea. Don’t worry though, they have access to other forms of water- it sits in a thermal basin, resulting in it having more than 1,300 thermal hot springs, with 123 of them in Budapest, earning it the moniker “city of spas”. Spa culture has been here for a while, with people cooking in little bowls of mineral rich water here since the Roman times.
