How far will my money go throughout Hungary?

The amount of money you'll be able to spend in Hungary will depend on several factors, such as your spending habits, the cost of living in the area you're visiting, and the exchange rate between your currency and Hungarian Forints. On average, Hungary is considered to have a lower cost of living compared to many Western European countries. This means that your money may go further in Hungary, especially if you're looking to experience the local culture, dine at local restaurants, and participate in budget-friendly activities. However, if you're planning to stay in luxury hotels, dine in upscale restaurants, and participate in expensive activities such as shopping and sightseeing, it's best to budget accordingly. It's always a good idea to check the current exchange rate and do some research on the average cost of various expenses in the area you're visiting to get a better idea of how far your money will go in Hungary.

Things to do while in Hungry

Hungary is a country full of history, culture, and delicious cuisine. The capital city, Budapest, is a popular destination for travellers, but there are many other places in Hungary worth exploring. One of the top things to do in Hungary is to visit the thermal baths. Hungary is known for its thermal springs, and there are many beautiful bathhouses throughout the country. The most famous of these is the Széchenyi Thermal Bath in Budapest, which is one of the largest thermal baths in Europe. These baths are a great way to relax and rejuvenate after a long day of sightseeing.

Another must-do activity in Hungary is to sample the local cuisine. Hungarian food is hearty and delicious, with dishes like goulash, stuffed cabbage, and chimney cake. There are many restaurants throughout the country that serve traditional Hungarian dishes, as well as more modern fusion cuisine. In Budapest, visitors can check out the Central Market Hall, which is a great place to try local specialties like paprika, salami, and pickles.

For those interested in history and architecture, Hungary has plenty to offer. Budapest is home to many stunning buildings, including the Hungarian Parliament Building and St. Stephen's Basilica. Visitors can also explore the Buda Castle District, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site that dates back to the 13th century. Outside of Budapest, there are many charming towns and villages to visit, such as Eger, which is known for its beautiful Baroque architecture.

Finally, wine lovers should not miss the opportunity to visit the Tokaj wine region in northeastern Hungary. This area produces some of the world's finest sweet white wines, and visitors can take tours of the vineyards and sample the wines. The region is also known for its picturesque villages and stunning scenery, making it a great place to relax and unwind.
