What do I need to know before moving to Budapest?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Budapest, they said...

"Stay away from the party districts unless you want to party. Those would be in the center of the Pest side of the city. Traffic is bad and loud as are the tourist. A good area is District 1 right under the castle. Consider using the public transportation when you choose your place. It's only about 35 usds per month and you can use anything; bus, tram, metro, and short train routes. Parking will be expensive if you can get a permit and a garage is hard to find as is an apartment with parking," commented one expat who made the move to Budapest, Hungary.

"Budapest is a vibrant and exciting city with a rich cultural heritage. Expats should be aware that the cost of living in Budapest is relatively low compared to other European cities, making it an attractive destination for those looking to relocate. Expats should also be aware that the Hungarian language is the official language of the country, so it is important to learn some basic phrases before moving. Additionally, expats should research the local customs and culture to ensure they are respectful of the local people and their traditions. Finally, expats should make sure to obtain the necessary visas and permits before moving to Budapest," remarked another expat in Budapest, Hungary.
