Trips to Budapest for Media & Film Studies Students

Field trips for Media and Film students to Budapest offer a unique experience. As well as housing one fifth of the country’s population, the nation’s wealth, political power, cultural life and transport converges here in this beautiful capital city.

Lying either side of the river the city is a swath of sweeping bridges and palatial buildings earning it the title “Pearl of the Danube”.  Still less exposed to tourism than nearby Prague, Budapest Student Trips offer an excellent opportunity to explore a city with a wealth of first-hand experience for your students.
