Budapest is one of the biggest and most exciting cities in Central and Eastern Europe. Amongst its most popular attractions are undoubtedly its thermal baths, now renowned throughout the world.
Although Budapest, the capital city of Hungary, has only officially carried the title as a Spa City for 80 years, its unique facilities were fully recognized by Roman legionaries over 2000 years ago!
According to available records, there were then 14 baths in the city at that time, some of whose remaining foundations and walls can be seen in Óbuda to this day.
Hungarian medical and dental universities are well-known throughout Europe for their scientific work and level of education, this is why a vast number of foreign students attend the medical courses in the Hungarian capital and other cities. This quality education ensures that you will receive treatments from the best doctors using state of the art equipment in private clinics.
Beside dentistry, you can get great value for your money in ophthalmological services too.
