WARNING! Experience shows that too many people plan too short a trip to Budapest: three days, or even just two. Well, I have to tell you this time will only be sufficient to make you regret that you didn't stay longer! Do yourself a favour, and plan at least a week-long stay in Budapest. The city is not just about seeing a few tourist sights ad then you are done: it has a huge historical centre, full of houses built between 1890 and 1930, with very peculiar styles. You will have to spend hours with your nose in the air, looking at weird cupolas, mosaics, statues, coloured ceramics ... Even one week will only be enough if you are the Duracell bunny. If you are not, you may want to plan extra days, for example to enjoy one of the famous Turkish baths, or to see some museums.
Why should you come? God, there are sooooo many reasons...I can just give you one, which is closest to my heart: Pszinapszis (Budapest Psychology Days) is being organized for the 11th time in 2007 by the Pszichodiák Alapítvány. Pszinapszis is Europe’s largest scientific-cultural-educational event that is organized exclusively by students. Our main goal is to bring psychology a bit closer to everyone: we would like You to get familiar with psychology, to see how much You have to do with it and maybe show You, how You could use it in your life. The fact that Pszinapszis attracted 4000 visitors last year shows that there is a growing interest in European society for psychology. The motto of this year's Pszinapszis – around which the programme is built – is “Under Development”. Visitors will be invited to take a look at the different kinds of changes a person, a family, a group of people or a society can go through. Topics will be examined from the viewpoint of 21st century psychology by our guest lecturers. The scientific programme consists of lectures, roundtable discussions and self-experience workshops, but Pszinapszis is a lot more, than just a conference. Our cultural programme gives Pszinapszis the certain "ambiente", that is not comparable to others. Exhibitions, concerts, theatre and dance performances, teahouse and a relax-room with free massage will maybe help the visitor to experience "development" from a very different point of view. We warmly invite everyone who is interested to come and join us and see the beautiful Budapest in spring! Interested? Contact me (cokmok) and I will try to answer you questions, give you more info about Pszinapszis and Budapest and even try to find you cheap accomodation (since I can't host everyone :) cheers, Anna
