Treatment in Hungary costs typically half of what you would pay in the United Kingdom even after travel costs. Budapest, the capital city of Hungary is only a two and a half hour flight from the United Kingdom and the city centre is a short 20 minute journey from the airport. Hungary has been part of the European Union since 2004 and there are no Visa requirements. Medical regulations are the same as elsewhere in the European Union, including the United Kingdom, and it also has its own highly regulated national standards for medical care.
As well as being renowned for dental treatments, Hungary is a very popular destination for cosmetic surgery and is now expanding its offer to all areas of medical treatment. It is also home to world class English speaking surgeons and four medical universities which are well attended by international students.
Hungary, called Magyarorszag in Hungarian, has a rich and culturally diverse history. It has been home to Celts, Romans, Huns and Avars and was occupied by the Ottoman Empire from 1541 – 1699. It became part of the huge and powerful Austro- Hungarian Empire in 1867 when the Kingdom of Hungary was granted equality with the Empire of Austrian. Following defeat in the World War I, where most of the Hungarian territory was divided up under the Treaty of Trianon, followed Hungary’s joining with the Axis Power in World War II, Hungary became a satellite state of the Soviet Union. Hungary has been a democratic country for 30 years since 1989 and became a member of the European Union in 2004. It is also a member of the major global institutions including the United Nations, NATO, WTO and the World Bank. Hungary ranks as the 17th safest country in the world and is a huge draw for tourism attracting over 15 million visitors per year, more that the population of Hungary!
