Answer this Question

We asked expats in Eger what banks they use and there advice about banking. They advised...

"Eger is a city in northern Hungary known for its historical significance, thermal baths, and world-class wines. Before retiring in Eger, expats should know that the cost of living is relatively low compared to other European cities, making it an affordable retirement destination. The official language is Hungarian, which can be challenging to learn, but English is also widely spoken, especially by younger generations and in tourist areas. The healthcare system in Hungary is of a high standard, with both public and private options available. Expats are eligible for public healthcare if they are residents and contribute to the social security system. Eger has a continental climate, with hot summers and cold winters, so expats should be prepared for this type of weather. The city is well-connected to other parts of Hungary and Europe by train and bus, making travel easy and convenient. Hungary is part of the Schengen Area, so expats from other Schengen countries can move freely. However, those from outside the EU will need to apply for a residence permit. Hungarian cuisine is hearty and flavorful, with dishes like goulash and chicken paprikash being popular. Eger is also known for its wine, particularly Egri Bikavér, so wine lovers will feel right at home. The city is rich in history and culture, with many museums, churches, and a castle to explore. It also has a vibrant arts scene, with numerous festivals and events throughout the year. Finally, it's important to note that Hungary has a relatively high tax rate, so expats should seek advice on tax planning before moving," remarked another expat who made the move to Eger, Hungary.
