Hungarian Rotaract Roundtrip
augusztus 15 - augusztus 22
Dear Fellow Rotaractors,
We would like to invite you for a week long trip to explore Hungary.
The adventure will begin in Budapest on the 15th August, 2018. We will meet you at the station/airport (depends on you) and take you to your accomodation. Later we will go for a lovely dinner where we can get to know each other a bit better.
The next day you will have a city tour to discover Budapest. You will visit the historical sights of the capital, including Buda Castle, which has been selected as one of the ten most spectacular castles in Europe by National Geographic. Once the sun goes down you will experience the famous nightlife of Budapest. The city center is full of party places, ruin pubs, so it will be a night to remember.
On 17th August, we will head to Balaton, the largest lake in Central Europe. A sailing ship will wait for you to show you the beauty of the “Hungarian Sea”. The same day our annual summer team building event will start here, so you will spend the next 2 days with Rotaractors, among friends. Lots of activies, surprises and a toga party at the end.
On 19th August, we will cross the country to visit Debrecen as on the 20th August the city will hold its annual, internationally renowned event, the Flower Carnival. Since 1966, the city of Debrecen honored of the founder of Hungary, Saint Stephen and the New Bread Festival by bringing spectacular flower arrangements to the city, accompanied by Hungarian and foreign bands, majorette groups and brass bands. The programme will start early morning and will keep you up until late into the night, ending it with fireworks.
On 21st August, we will visit the city of Eger, where the famous wine, the Egri Bikavér is coming from as well as so many other delicious wines. You will be able to taste some of these on the closing dinner after a stroll in the historical city.
The trip will end on 22nd August and you will be able to take a train back to the international airports of Debrecen, Budapest or Kassa. As you have multiple options, this travel is not included in the trip, but we are happy to help you in case of need.
This trip will cost 210 Euros in total for all of these activities, accommodations, travelling and we will provide you meals 3 times a day. The only thing that will be on you is the drinks! 😛
In case of any questions, please do not hesitate to get in contact with us!
