  • A few words about Budapest

    Budapest is location of globally significant events…

    Budapest is home to internationally popular marathons and to the Sziget Festival, one of the largest cultural and music festivals in Europe. The Formula 1 Hungarian Grand Prix is more and more popular, since 1986 this motor race event has been held annually just outside of Budapest. Another great example from the past, the 17th FINA World Aquatics Championships were also held in Budapest in 2017 which has attracted over 10,000 visitors. More international competitions are due to be held here in 2021: amongst others the UEFA European Football Championships. The city will also host several large congresses this year such as the European Stadium & Safety Management Association Summit (ESSMA), the 52nd International Eucharistic Congress and the 41st SICOT Orthopaedic World Congress. In 2021 Budapest will be again the host destination for the World Hunting and Nature Expo where the organizers expect one million visitors.

    Budapest is a vibrant capital city with amazing event venues

    An outstanding cultural life and magnificent historic spas welcome visitors to Budapest, a true metropolis that offers unforgettable experiences in every season, especially in the fall. The weather is sunny, the Hungarian cities are full with program. Budapest offers unlimited possibilities to spend a couple of days in or around the city. The House of Parliament, the Gellért Hill, the Chain Bridge are just a few of them. Hungarian food deserves to be mentioned among the country's main attractions. As in other cultures, the Hungarian approach to food combines pride in their own traditions with a readiness to accept outside influences. The result is a vibrant restaurant scene where an Asian-Hungarian fusion restaurant may well be of genuine interest. Luckily, prices are significantly below Western Europe's.
