The city
Budapest truly is the heart at the centre of central Europe. A vibrant, regenerating city that combines the best of the West with the first indications of Eastern promise, Hungary’s capital has something to offer for everyone.

Bisected by the Danube River, the city-of-two-halves has a history that dates back a thousand years, something that is reflected in its rich architecture and quilted customs. The Sunday Times is quoted as saying it is high culture and fine dining next to bubbling baths and ruinous drinking; a reference to its numerous thermal spas and unique ruin bars. The Guardian gives a more detailed account of just what the city has to offer, however, lauding Budapest’s famous festive markets, stunning architecture, and mouth-watering local dishes.

Why is Budapest the best city for you?
There are several reasons why Budapest is the ideal location for a motivated and qualified EFL teacher. Firstly, it offers an affordable quality of life that no other capital city can claim. The Price of Travel website states that it is the 6th cheapest city to visit in Europe.

However, this does not take into account just how well-located this stunning capital is. With seven interesting and unique countries bordering Hungary, Budapest is the perfect location to discover the sunny shores of Croatia, the majestic mountains of Slovakia, and the exquisite architecture of Austria.

Yet there are more than a few reasons for you to put off your long weekends until you have truly explored every inch of the city first. CNN’s recent travel article states that Budapest’s skyline is one of the most stunning in Europe, while The New York Times extols the virtues of the vibrant nightlife, art scenes, and endless entertainment.

If you truly want to know how you can while away your time in Budapest, however, there is no better place to look than Meetup.com. Here you can find a list of the hundreds of English speaking clubs and societies, offering opportunities in everything from writing and rock-climbing to Pilates and painting.

In fact, the only real problem that Budapest suffers from, is that once people make the decision to move here, very few ever want to leave.
