Please find below special tips from a CEU Mom

WHERE TO GO - 'depending on the age of the child I recommend the Zoo in Budapest, various thematic playgrounds (Millenaris, Rumini, Vuk, etc.) based on Hungarian children's book/stories and play houses (we like the one in Mammut, but there is also Millipop at Millenaris).  There are also super places like Szamoca (http://www.gyerekkertesz.hu/) where children can learn some gardening, REX (http://www.rex.hu/) where they can interact with rescued dogs and other animals.  Must go to the Natural History Museum (http://www.nhmus.hu/).  There are lots of good swimming pools like MOM (http://momsport.hu/en)....should I go on?! :)'

WHAT TO DO - 'lot of free programs available.  I have some friends who run an excellent web page (sadly in Hungarian) about these, see http://minimatine.hu/, maybe this service could be provided in English (or just translated by google).  This could provide an opportunity for children to learn handicrafts.' 

CLOTHES - 'there are a lot of second hand shops selling good quality items at a reasonable price (which may be important for students on a low budget).  I recommend HADA shops (http://www.hadakft.hu/en/), but there are a lot of others.  Look around on the Korut...  H&M and C&A are the best value for money if you want to buy new stuff.'
