Hungary is a proud country where Eastern Europe meets the West. Its stunning capital of Budapest, once known as the “Paris of the East,” the mighty Danube River and flat countryside with rolling hills in the distance paint a unique picture of this country’s beautiful landscape. Make sure you check out one of the traditional Hungarian festivals, which usually revolve around food.
Hungarian teenagers take their studies seriously and work hard for final exams, which are important for college admissions. In their spare time, they join school or community organized activities such as sports (soccer, basketball and volleyball are popular), drama, folk dance and music clubs. On weekends you’ll enjoy going to movies, parties or to someone’s house to have a chat.
