What should I pack when moving to Budapest?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in Budapest to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"When moving to Budapest, it is important to pack items that will help you feel comfortable and settled in your new home. Consider bringing clothing for all seasons, as the weather in Budapest can range from hot summers to cold winters. It is also a good idea to bring any necessary documents, such as a passport, visa, and any other important paperwork. Additionally, it is helpful to bring items that will make your new home feel like home, such as pictures, decorations, and any other items that will make you feel at home. Finally, it is important to bring any necessary electronics, such as a laptop, phone, and any other items that you may need," remarked another expat who made the move to Budapest, Hungary.

"If you’re relocating to Hungary the only things you really need to bring are the things that are irreplaceable to you. Family photos, art, mementos. Despite what you may have heard virtually everything else is available if you know where to look. Jonesing for a Reese’s peanut butter cup? Asian store on Kiraly in the 6th and so on. Anything you pack and ship besides clothes and personal items is probably a waste. I wish I brought half as much as I did. Things not to bring? Furniture and anything with a plug," explained one expat living in Hungary.
