    The Location

Budapest has a genuinely Central European location, with 7 countries bordering Hungary: Austria, Slovenia, Slovakia,Ukraine, Romania, Serbia and Croatia. Thus, all capital cities are within easy reach by train or bus for a day / weekend trip.
    Often called the “Pearl of the Danube”, Budapest is a wonderful city with a vivid historical and cultural life. Music, dance and theatrical festivals are held every summer.
