Be swept away by the diversity of Central Europe
Walk the streets of any of Hungary's cities and you'll quickly notice one thing: the architecture. Being geographically located in the heart of Europe, there are layers upon layers of influence from throughout European history. From Roman ruins to streets lined with Medieval architecture and city squares with baroque churches at the center, you'll see something new at almost every corner.
If you're in Budapest, get some much needed relaxation and treat yourself in one of Hungary's famous thermal baths after a stroll along the Danube. These baths are not just an excuse to get into the water, but also a chance to rejuvenate in their mineral-rich pools. If that wasn't enough, the thermal baths are an important part of Hungary's rich architectural portfolio, whether it's located in an old Turkish bath house or a more modern art nouveau building, there's more to the experience than just the water.
With one of the more sophisticated styles of cooking in Europe, the Hungarian people use plenty of meats which comes from their Magyar history as a nomadic people. The heavy presence of meat in Hungarian fare results in hearty meals that will easily fill you up. Follow that up with sweet pastries and your taste buds will be thanking you.
Whether you're marveling at the architecture, relaxing in the thermal baths, eating some of Hungary's prized cuisine, or dancing to local folk music, there's plenty to see and do to give you an authentic Central European experience in Hungary.
Healthcare in Hungary
The Hungarian healthcare system is an employment-based, tax-funded national insurance program that provides almost universal coverage to Hungarian citizens. With funding from health insurance, services are technically free of charge for all citizens, but sometimes don’t adequately cover the care needed and patients have to make some contribution or pay “gratuity fees” to poorly paid doctors and other professionals after major procedures, or for prescriptions. The central government, the National Assembly, local governments, regional health councils, the National Health Insurance Fund Administration and the National Public Health and Medical Officer Service, among many other organizations, are responsible for making decisions and providing social welfare and health provision.
