Walk the blue route

The E4 trans-European walking route cuts right across Hungary, and unlike some of its neighbours, Hungary is meticulous about signposting, so even if the tricky Hungarian Language is an insurmountable maze of grammar, you will not need it to follow the colour-coded sign on trees and markers. Here it is known as the National Blue Route and is denoted by a horizontal blue stripe on a white background.
