About the Country and the City
Hungary is a member of the European Union and is located in the heart of Central-East Europe with roughly 10 million inhabitants. Budapest is not only the capital, but it is the  political, economic and cultural centre of the country.

Due to its unique natural and architectural factors it is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe (most airlines operate direct flights to Budapest). Each year millions arrive to admire the Castle District of Buda, the Saint Stephen’s Basilica, the Parliament building, the Synagogue in Dohány Street and to indulge in one of the famous baths. The city has good public transport system, its liveable and close to nature, and no one would feel lost here.

According to The Economist, Budapest has overtaken Prague and Moscow as the most liveable city in Eastern Europe based on health, environmental, cultural, educational and infrastructural factors. The Great Market Hall is one of Europe’s historic fresh food markets – incidentally, located right beside the main building of Corvinus University.
