There are also mountains in Hungary; the Carpathians form a part of the North Hungarian Mountains which lie along the border with Slovakia. The most famous river in Hungary is no doubt the Danube, which divides the country into two parts, but The Tisza and Drva Rivers also provide tourists with recreational opportunities.
The biggest thermal lake on earth is Lake Hvz, where tourists to Hungary can enjoy a world-famous spa as well as a significant natural wonder. Hungary also has a wealth of national parks and nature preserves, with almost 200 different regions under some form of protection from encroachment or development.
