Highlights on Semmelweis University
This — now small — country is one of the oldest European countries, situated in the middle of Europe in the Carpathian Basin.
Hungarians speak a language and form a culture unlike any other in the region: this distinctiveness has been a source of pride for more than 1100 years.
This is the country,
And there is something else that keeps bringing visitors back to us - the legendary Hungarian hospitality.

More on Hungary:
Some fall in love with Budapest at first sight, others will only become a devoted fan of it after a longer stay, but no one denies that it is one of the most beautifully situated and most exciting cities in the world.
Budapest, the capital of Hungary, locates in the centre of Middle Europe, on both sides of the river Danube. The city with full of surprises and wonder, with its lively centre, pretty parks, majestic river, tall church spires and lavish spas. The Gellért Hill with the Citadel and the Royal Castle with its Castle District define the view of Buda. In this district you will find the extremely rich collection of the Hungarian National Gallery and the National Széchenyi Library. On the Pest side the neo-Gothic building of Parliament raises. The view of Pest is dominated by the dynamic economic and social marks of the development of large middle class housing units throughout the 19th century.
Budapest is full of secrets to uncover, hidden spots to explore and old favourites to revisit. This is the city where being bored is not an option. It has a lot to offer. Museums and galleries, churches and synagogues, palaces and historic buildings, baths and pools are presented together with the influence of Secession in the city. There is an unmistakable feeling that something out of the ordinary is just around the corner, but what it will be is up to you to discover...
Budapest is the venue of numerous congresses, international meetings, sport competitions and cultural events, with its developed infrastructure, elegant lines of shops and modern hotels, it is justifiably described as one of the most beautiful capitals of the world.
