If we started playing an association game about Budapest, the city’s historic bath culture would probably be among the first things that come to mind. There are more than 1,000 natural springs in Hungary (and the world’s largest thermal lake at Hévíz, near Veszprém), with 118 in Budapest alone. Over the past few years, the country and the capital have demonstrated their excellent hospitality and skills in organizing impressive major sporting events multiple times, for example, the EHF Final4 for years now.

Bars and pubs are something you cannot miss out on in Budapest. We love our charming little cafés, bookstores that offer great food, refreshing drinks, and delicious cakes. Cool by day and smokin’ hot at night, Budapest is rapidly earning a reputation as one of Central Europe’s best youth scenes.
