Budapest, one of the most beautiful historical capitals in Europe, is situated on the banks of the Danube. Buda lies in the hills on the western bank, famous for its historic Castle Hill and beautiful residential area, and bustling Pest with its shopping, government and commercial districts lies on the flat plain of the east bank.


The architectural beauty with its monuments from neo-classic through baroque to eclectic art nouveau is prevalent in the city. Budapest is also world famous for its artistic abundance of concerts, operas, recitals, galas and exhibitions.
The Europa Congress Center, the conference site, providing a modern plenary room and several session rooms with state-of-the-art technology, will be a unique venue to organize the event.
