Crowning the Danube River on both sides, Budapest is a hidden gem of Central Europe, a city dating all the way back to the ancient Roman Empire with a rich and fascinating history to match. Learn more about the impact of World War II and the Soviet Union’s occupation of the Hungarian capital simply by exploring the city streets and monuments, surrounded with architectural styles ranging from Gothic to Baroque to Art Nouveau. The city’s many flowering gardens and green parks, some of which you can find on the seven islands dotting the Danube, will keep you connected to nature while you study here. Discover why Hungarian food is widely considered the tastiest and most popular of eastern and central Europe as you sample the many stews locals prepare, along with Hungarian fry bread, stuffed cabbage leaves, and pastries. When in Budapest, experiencing the spa culture is a must: the city’s thermal baths, fed by natural hot springs, have been a main attraction for thousands of years. Study abroad in Budapest, a uniquely charming and different European city, to further your education and improve your future.
A land of castles and hot springs, accomplished classical musicians and composers, locally produced wine and postcard-worthy architecture, Hungary has something for every taste. Get to know the world of Hungarian folk tradition in small town festivals and celebrations, where people pass down the customs, dances, and costumes of their ancestors down to each new generation. Plunge into the Hungarian spa scene and soak up the country’s historically famous thermal waters. Just because Hungary is a landlocked country doesn’t mean you’ll miss out on beach time: Balaton Lake, the largest lake in Central Europe, has plenty of shoreline for you and your friends to sunbathe on. Hungary’s pastoral countryside gives you a relaxing escape from city life and classroom time when you need a break. The Lillafured Caves and Hortobagy National Park alone can introduce you to Hungarian wildlife and unforgettable natural beauty. Study abroad in Hungary to find out why it’s one of Europe’s best kept secrets, and you’ll return home with a renewed sense of excitement for your major and maybe even some Hungarian language in your vocabulary.
Ahmad is originally from Cairo, Egypt, where he lived for 22 years. His first foray into study abroad came when he lived in the U.S. as an exchange student during his senior year of high school. That experience inspired him to work in international education, where he has built his career over the past decade. After graduating with a BA in International Relations from the American University in Cairo, Ahmad immigrated to the U.S. in 2001, where he pursued his graduate studies at DePaul University and studied abroad in The Netherlands as part of the Summer Institute on Sexuality, Culture, and Society.
