Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to Budapest, considered one of the most beautiful cities in Europe.

I hope you will enjoy not only the annual meeting of UEMS specialist section of Orthopedics and Traumatology, but also your stay in this interesting capital of Hungary. Let us meet also around traditional Hungarian dishes at the banquet, which will take place in the neo-Renaissance central building of Hungarian Academy of Sciences, which was founded in 1825 when Count István Széchenyi offered one year's income of his estate for the purposes of a Learned Society.

Budapest as the "pearl" of the Danube, the panorama, the Buda Castle Quarter, Andrássy Avenue and the Millennium Underground listed as World Heritage by UNESCO. While in Budapest don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy some free time in this wonderful city, why not a delightful bathing in one of the famous thermal baths.

Have a great meeting and a memorable stay in Budapest!

Prof. Dr. Tamás Illés
UEMS Delegate
