The Destination

Budapest invites you to wander the streets, soaking in the historical art and architecture by day, and events, dining, and music by night. The Danube river divides the two sides of the city, Buda and Pest, so you will never be far from the water and river cruises are a popular activity.  Budapest boasts an efficient network of metro lines, buses, and trams that make it easy to travel between neighborhoods.  Teachers in Budapest enjoy the café culture, neighborhood bakeries with an array of local treats, and the famous thermal baths that are fed by dozens of hot springs.
