What is it like to retire in Hungary?

"All of those things are available and many more. Small country but it has everything. I love visiting spas throughout the country, wine regions and was an active member of IWC at one time," said another retiree in Budapest.

"It is a great city, culturally, recreation and schools. However as other major cities the air is not so clean all the time. Many events are held and traffic is shut down. Public trans while not cheap it is a fair deal and monthly passes or higher is the way to go," commented one retiree living in Budapest, Hungary.
