The river Danube “divides” Hungary into a northern and southern part. This river, the second longest river of Europe, and the only one which runs from west to east.
It runs trough Budapest. Almost one third of the river runs through Hungary.
Hungary has another major river: the Tisza.
Together, the two rivers separate Hungary into three large parts.
Hungary is mostly flat, lower than 200 metres. Only 2% of the country is higher than 300 metres, mostly mountains of 300 metres high. The highest mountain is Mount kékes in the mátra mountains section, northeast of Budapest.
Hungary has got three different geographical sections; Great Alföld, east of the danuba river, transdanubia, west of the danuba river and the northern hills in the north of Hungary.
