With the Danube River as its pulse, Budapest beats to a rhythm of indomitable spirit cloaked in beauty and charm. And no wonder. The Hungarian capital is exquisitely laid out on both sides of the Danube, claiming one of the most spectacular panoramic views in all of Europe.
Medical care in Hungary is of a good standard; medical staff are highly skilled and care facilities are relatively well supplied. The Hungarian health service has experienced all-embracing privatisation in recent years. It is now funded through taxation and by the Health Insurance Fund (HIF) known in Hungarian as the Országos Egészségbiztosítási Pénztár (OEP).
