21 domains served from a single CMS, tourist information in multiple languages.

What we are proud of…

The homepage of the Hungarian National Tourist Office promotes sights and touristic values of our country in English with Hungarian folk art design.

Running on a multi-domain-capable Webra 3.0 content management system which is operating almost all other specific portals of the Hungarian National Tourist Office, the site uses touristic information from the National Touristic Database. We have developed a multi-language database (currently in English, Hungarian, German, Spanish, French, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Slovakian, Ukrainian, Italian).

Contributors can edit and upload portal contents in any language. The ’Languages’ menu on the main page directs to other websites about Hungary that are available in 31 different tongues with various, eye-catching designs.
