Other Info:
International House Budapest is located in a sparkling new office building on Széll Kálman Tér, just a few steps from Vienna Gate and the castle area. School facilities include a complete teacher training library, a self-access room with 8 computers, wireless access throughout the premises, and a photocopier/printer. There is also a large teachers’ room, a snack bar, several sitting areas, not to mention 14 classrooms. What strikes most visitors is that despite the impenetrability of the Hungarian language, Budapest is one of the most accessible, liveable, relaxed yet stimulating cities one might ever visit. The Danube separates hilly, elegant Buda from the more downtown, urban Pest; it’s as easy to reach endless acres of forest and hills for walking and jogging as it is to pop out for a bite to eat and a film. Budapest is a very welcoming and easy-to-settle-into town. The shops are excellent and provide all familiar food products etc. There is a wide range of cultural activities available for participants (and if they can’t find any free time there are at least many pleasant parks and bars for reading in.)
