Hungary and Slovenia - Accessible Tourism

Easily, you pay 90 Euro per night/room for a 4-star hotel when you
travel to Europe. In Budapest, at this price, you get
buffet-breakfast, en suite accommodation, Free transfer to the airport
and from the airport. Besides, for this rate to include a 2-course
dinner, a 30-minutes massage and the usage of the hotel's sauna
facilities, it is rather hard to find.

Hungary is very well known somehow because of its affordable
and high quality Dentistry. For this reason, you are also offered a
free transfer to the dentist, EVERYDAY by the Hotel Panda at the Buda
side of Budapest.

Hotel Panda is an extraordinary enterprise. It has employees
who do their job at a maximum level and they are people with changed
abilities. Hotel Panda takes an active role in the practical training
and education of the mentally disabled people. And they take special
care of people with disabilities by offering 'Horse Therapy' (Pasareti
Honved Lovarda), 'Accessible Study Path' at Pilisi Parkerdo and
'Accessible Cave Tour' at Szemlo-hegyi barlang where it gives
sightseeing opportunities even for people with hearing impairment.

Here are some videos about Hotel Panda:

In Slovenia, Ljubljana, ŠENT, Slovenian Association for Mental Health,
has included as part of their portfolio, an unique social enterprise. ŠENT is
the lead partner of Turag4all, the first travel agency in Slovenia

is a travel agency that supports the concept of accessible tourism to
all people, regardless of their physical limitations, disabilities or
