Budapest study abroad

Postby TarekF » Fri Apr 06, 2012 5:14 am

Hey there everyone, haven't been active for a bit, but anyway, I have just been accepted to "Budapest Semesters in Mathematics", a study abroad program.

Im a vegan, so I was wondering about vegan options and a few "sports" things.

So the university adress will be:

College International
Budapest Semesters in Mathematics
1071 Budapest
Bethlen Gabor ter 2
HUNGARY

To my knowledge it is pretty centralized.

So I am wondering, how available are vegan foods in markets? Where are some good restaurants?

As far as sports, if you know of any tennis clubs and gyms that would be great. And for the rock climbers, is there a climbing gym there? And lastly are there any good outdoor spots to climb close to Budapest?

Thats about all for now but i think the food situation is much more important.

Thanks,
~TRF

Have to say, nepfenyes is one of the best vegan restaurants I have ben to. Their pizza is worth committing a serious offences for.

Speaking of budaveg, I am thinking of staying there if they allow long term renters. Which they told me was a possibility, hah.

Ill keep nepfenyes in mind, as well.

Thanks guys, good to know that Hungary is decently Veg friendly
