"Crime is not a major problem in Hungary. The country has a relatively low crime rate compared to other European countries. However, there have been reports of pickpocketing and other petty crimes in some areas, particularly in tourist areas. Violent crime is rare, but it does occur in some parts of the country," explained one expat living in Hungary.

"Like any capital cities crime is a definite issue. Two years ago I got pickpocketed on the bus. It was Romanian gypsies. There are also lot of homeless who appeared to be able to camp out pretty much everywhere (except maybe at the Parliament building, LOL!) Mainly at metro and railroad stations. There are the occasional car thefts but having said that things are fairly save," said another expat in Budapest, Hungary.
