What cultural faux pas should I try to avoid making in Budapest?

Answer this Question

We asked people in Budapest if they could share any humorous cultural blunders they commited. For new expats, keep in mind that these incidents are an inevitable part of expat life. Learning to laugh about them is the key!...

"It is important to be mindful of local customs and etiquette when visiting Budapest. It is considered rude to be late for appointments or social engagements, so it is important to arrive on time. It is also important to dress modestly and conservatively, especially when visiting religious sites. It is also important to be respectful of the Hungarian language and not to speak loudly in public. Additionally, it is important to be aware of the local customs regarding tipping, as it is not customary to tip in Hungary. Finally, it is important to be respectful of the local culture and to avoid making any negative comments about the country or its people," remarked another expat in Budapest, Hungary.

"Actually none that I am aware of, it was more a reverse shock when I started getting involved in the Dutch expat community: the fact that I dared take the metro in this extremely dangerous city (ahum)... sorry..," said a member in Budapest, Hungary.
