Formalities

Hungary has been ethnically diverse since its inception, and while today over 90% of the population are ethnically Hungarian, pockets of ethnic and cultural Slovaks, Romanians, Germans and others dot the country. Due to the border changes of Hungary after World War I, over 2 million ethnic and cultural Hungarians live in bordering countries, as well. The Hungarians, otherwise known as Magyars, are the descendants of several tribes from Central Asia, who were believed to be fierce, nomadic horsemen and came to Central Europe in the 9th century

Accommodation

Vegetarians and Vegans will have about as much ease eating out as in any other western country. Budapest is not a problem, as there is a wide variety of restaurants to choose from, but in an ordinary Hungarian restaurant the non-meat mains on the menu are pretty much limited to rántott sajt (fried cheese) and gombafejek rántva (fried mushrooms).

Health care

Private health care providers are high quality, but limited in scope once outside Budapest. Dentistry is cheaper here than in Western Europe (8-10000 HUF for an appointment and x-ray), and physiotherapy also (3000HUF for a half hour treatment), but check the price with the provider before you confirm the appointment. Outside Budapest you will likely have to speak basic Hungarian to communicate your needs as few doctors will have any English or German skills.

Transports

The Hungarian border control is very strict and thorough. They will not hesitate to conduct a full vehicle search if necessary. Entry from Schengen countries ( Austria, Slovenia,Slovakia ) is out of such border control since the abolishment of physical borders. All those remain show light control (Romania,Croatia) and due to a bilateral aggreement Serbian citizens are also no more undergo a strict border control. However you have to take into consideration that from Schengen area you might undergo a so called inside-customs control wherever moving/driving in the country.Non-Schengen passengers must take into account facing a strict control upon customs prescripitions from Ukraine and Serbia. Coming from Serbia you are allowed to bring 2 packets of cigarettes into Hungary. If you bring more they will take it and fine for 102 euros. Weapons for hunting are allowed to bring in from any EU Membersate if you have a European License. However with possessing that you may not buy or sell your or a new weapon here. Automatic weapons can’t be held at all, you’ll never get a license in HU to obtain such. The same is the situation with illcicit drugs as well.Infringement of these rules may definitely lead to your immediate arrestment! Entry from non-Schengen countries can take quite a long time, in particular in the summer months on the weekends when EU-Nationals are returning north along the E75 corridor from Belgrade, Serbia. The wait lines to get through the border have been as long as 7 km with a wait time of up to 6 hours. Alternative border points in Hungary or Croatia can be used to by-pass. If you are driving in from an EU country e.g. Austria, you are required to pull over to check with authorities at the border, otherwise, the borders are open and usually the immigration control kiosk are empty.

Driver’s licence

As for almost everyone else, such as Africans, Asians, and Americans, the general understanding is this: you may drive for a year on your home-country license, as long as it is accompanied by a piece of folded cardboard with a stamp. This is the international driver’s license. Then, you must get a Hungarian license after one year, which has a medical exam. That’s the limit of most everyone’s knowledge on the subject. In practice, the above means –at least based on anecdotal evidence— that many foreigners who have been here more than a year are simply driving on their old license, and hoping they can get away with it until, well, whenever. The process of getting your Hungarian license can seem so time consuming, expensive and mysterious that most people would rather chance it, and do.

Communications

Hungarians are rightly proud of their unique, complex, sophisticated, richly expressive language, Hungarian (Magyar pronounced “mahdyar”). It is a Uralic language most closely related to Mansi and Khanty of western Siberia. It is further sub-classified into the Finno-Ugric languages which include Finnish and Estonian; it is not at all related to any of its neighbours: the Slavic, Germanic, and Romance languages belonging to the Indo-European language family. Although related to Finnish and Estonian, they are not mutually intelligible. Aside from Finnish, it is considered one of the most difficult languages for English speakers to learn with the vocabulary, complicated grammar, and pronunciation being radically different. So it is not surprising that an English speaker visiting Hungary understands nothing from written or spoken Hungarian. Hungary did adopt the Latin alphabet after becoming a Christian kingdom in the year 1000.
