Gyula town is a holiday resort having 35 thousand inhabitants in the southeast part of Hungary, 220 km far from Budapest.
However for us, who live here, it is more. We worship our town as parochialists. We are proud of our culture, history, thermal water of curative power, physical and natural environment: buildings, trees, flowers and waters. We enjoy our inner town, the many-many programmes and the bustle. Thanks to Gyula we feel in this place so, even in the everyday life that WE ARE ON OUR SUMMER HOLIDAY!
You can reach Gyula City from Budapest Liszt Ferenc International Airport by:
- rented car, aprox 3 hours and 230 km
- train from Budapest Keleti Station through Békéscsaba (http://elvira.mav-start.hu/elvira.dll/x/index?language=2)
- or planned transfer from the airport, at a common date and time once for everyone
$300 (US dollar) or 82.000,-Ft (Hungarian Forint)

The apartment house is situated in the historic downtown of Gyula but quiet on the street next to the Castle Bath. The tastefully restored monument houses a Mediterranean garden where our guests can open for outdoor baking and cooking. We also recommend a larger friendship company. All our guests receive a discounted bath entrance.

The weather of Gyula
Like most Central and Western European cities, Gyula weather in winter (December to February) is accompanied with heavy snow and very cold temperatures. The city is blanketed with snow across several weeks each year. Summer months (June to August) can bring about mild to high temperatures of around 27°C; however, it is not all that uncommon for summer days to edge over 30°C.
During summer, from April till August, Gyula remains hot. The average maximums climb to 20 ºC while the low stands at mid-teens. July with more than 27 ºC and 276 hours of sunshine is considered as the hottest and sunniest month of the year. Although temperature seems somewhat unpleasant, it is one of the best seasons to visit Gyula.
The Organizers of the Camp do not provide insurance and do not take responsibility for any loss, accident or illness that might occur during the Camp or in the course of travel to or from the meeting site. It is, therefore, the responsibility of the participants to check their coverage with their insurance provider.
