Culture and etiquette
Religion in Hungary is varied. Christianity is the country's largest religion, although many other religions are practiced and a large number of Hungarians are not religious at all.
A tip of around 10% to 15% in restaurants is always appreciated. A service charge is often added to the bill, so no need to tip any extra on top of this. It's also common to tip at hotels and in taxis and spas.
Smoking is banned in enclosed public spaces, including shops, bars, restaurants and public transport.

What's the weather like in Hungary?
Much like the UK, Hungary has four distinct seasons. And all offer a unique and rewarding experience for travellers.
Spring is like a breath of fresh air – literally. Temperatures range from a crisp 10°C to a pleasant 20°C, so pack your sunnies and a jumper. Come summer you can forget the jumper – highs of 25°C to 30°C are perfect for strolling along the Danube River with an ice cream.
Temperatures in Autumn mellow to a mild 15°C to 20°C, making it a great time to wander through historic streets and visit cosy wine cellars. Mittens and mulled wine may be required in winter, as single digit temperatures and the occasional dusting of snow turns the country into a winter wonderland. Perfect Christmas market and goulash weather if you ask us.
Getting to Hungary
It takes about two and a half hours to fly from London to Budapest. It's possible to get there by car, train or river cruise too, but this takes a fair bit longer. Would make for quite the adventure, though.
Getting around Hungary
Roads are generally quite good in Hungary, so hiring a car is a great option if you want to travel around while you're there. Trains and coaches connect most major towns and cities too, plus the flat roads and country paths make it a great place to explore by bike.
Most major cities including Budapest have reliable public trasport networks, with plenty of trains, buses and trams to get you from A to B. Taxis are widely available too.Top
