Favorite thing: While Baja is the center for "Fish Soup" there are a lot of other things to see and experience there. A town with a population of about 50,000, it is nestled next to the Danube with abundant activities for boating, camping, shopping or just strolling. Has a beautiful town center with a cloverleaf design, wonderful quaint shops , modern hotels and an eclectic variety of restaurants. Even has a good home page (www.baja.hu). Try it if you are in the neighborhood.
Fondest memory: I was born there...I miss everything about it every time I have to go back to the States.Related to:
