Budapest Study Abroad Experience!

Prior to studying abroad, I had never travelled to Central or Eastern Europe before and did not know what to expect. Now having spend nearly four months in Budapest, and visiting the surrounding countries, I am beyond grateful I chose to study abroad here. Budapest is alive with culture, food, music, and new experiences that set it apart from Western Europe. The city is affordable for college students, easy to navigate, and beautiful in summer, fall, and winter. In November christmas markets and ice skating rinks pop up all over the city! There are many museums, restaurants, memorials, thermal baths, and festivals to enjoy. Because it is so central you will also have the opportunity to travel all over Europe, and visit many countries you may have never considered visiting before. If you are looking for a fun, central, and colorful city - than Budapest is for you!
