10 Surprising Facts About Hungary


5 Things You Should NEVER Do in Hungary ???????? Don't Do This in Budapest

In today's Hungary travel vlog, we discuss 5 Things You Should NEVER Do in Hungary and Don't Do This in Budapest.

There are a few other posts about Hungary: 25 Things to do in Budapest, Hungary Travel Guide, DO'S AND DON’T IN HUNGARY, Visit Budapest - Five Things You Will Love & Hate about Budapest, Hungary, and 3 Crazy Things About BUDAPEST. But none really touch on the things you should never do in Hungary. So I decided to make this travel vlog!

This isn't a complete list of what not to do in Hungary , just some things I observed from my recent trip to Budapest, Hungary. If you are Hungarian, a Hungarian expat, or living in Hungary and you have any other suggestions of things related to the topic of don't do this in Hungary , make sure you comment below. Make sure you also try Palinka! Palinka is a fruit brandy! If offered Palinka it is rude to turn it down.

Hungary tourism is a big driver of the Hungarian economy, so they do overlook somethings that tourist do, but try to respect the cultural differences when you travel Hungary.

Hopefully you can use this to supplement your Hungary travel guide advice and not be viewed as a rude tourist.

I love Hungary - don't let the rules or culture differences keep you from visiting. Just be mindful of those cultural differences and enjoy this awesome country.

5 Things You Should Never Do In Hungary

Let me start off by saying, if I had to recommend just one city in Europe to visit it would probably be Budapest. It’s got everything, old world charm but in a modern city, the architecture is amazing and exactly what you think of when you think European city, it’s very safe, the food is amazing and it’s soooo affordable compared to comparable cities.

1 - Never clink glasses or bottles together. There was a revolution in Hungary in 1848 that was defeated. Legend has it that Austrians celebrated in Vienna by toasting and clinking their glasses. Hungarians vowed not to cheers with glasses for 150 years. While that time frame ended in 1998 - many Hungarians still do not cheers! It was actually against the law until the mid 1990s!

2 - Never make the Hungry Hungary joke to a Hungarian. It’s one of those things that non Hungarians say to Hungarians and well….it’s just not funny. Don’t do that!!!!

3 - Never forget to tip. After spending 8 months in countries where tipping isn’t customary and sometimes considered offensive, I often forget to tip! In Budapest and Hungary in general tipping is customary. The acceptable tipping rate is around 15%. Side note: Don’t say thank you until you’ve paid your tab. Saying thank you when you pay your tab lets the server know you’re done and you don’t expect any change. So make sure you don’t do that if you want change back.

4 - Never refuse Palinka. Palinka is a fruit brandy that is a favorite with Hungarians. Hungarians like to say Palinka in small amounts is medicine, in large amounts a remedy! You don’t drink Palinka alone - it’s a drink Hungarians have with friends. It’s is a big no-no to turn down Palinka if it’s offered to you.

5 - Never say Buda-PEST. That’s the quickest way to get on a Hungarian’s bad side. It’s Buddah - PESHT. Side note: DONT CALL IT Bucharest! That’s in Romania! I made that mistake…didn’t turn out well for me! In my defense I had one to many Palinka!!!!

Also, never miss a chance to hang out at one of the Budapest ruin bars.

10 Best Places to Visit in Hungary.
While Hungary is famous for its goulash and paprika (which, by the way, originated in the New World), it’s known for much more than that, including world-class fine wines and its pear liqueur, an orange-colored sweet dessert treat, sometimes known as palinka.
Visitors to Hungary quickly learn it is a land of many cultures, having been ruled over by the Romans, Ottomans, Mongols, Magyars, Czechs and the Soviets. Remains of Roman fortifications can be found as can utterly spectacular buildings dating back to the Middle Ages. Hungary also is the land of the beautiful blue Danube River; no trip here would be complete without a boat ride on it. An overview of the best places to visit in Hungary:
10. Gyor
9. Hortobagy National Park
8. Debrecen
7. Heviz
6. Aggtelek National Park
5. Pecs

9 Things you Must Eat in Budapest, Hungary

Last summer we had the chance to experience the Sziget Festival in Budapest and to combine it with the amazing food culture of the capital of Hungary! Typical of Central Europe, its staples are based on bell peppers, paprika and smoked sausage, without forgetting sour cream and cheese… From street food staples such as the fried Langosz covered with cheesy potatoes or the famous cylindrical cake, to fancy restaurants dating back to the Magyar Empire as well as amazing markets ready to enchant your palate, Budapest is definitely worth a food travel!
And you are lucky, there are still spots to visit the Sziget Festival this year from the 7th to the 13th of August :)

Here are our top 9 of what you should try in Budapest

Tarhonya : this typical egg-based pasta is fried in butter or lard before being boiled, and is usually served with meat or vegetable stews, fried sausages or in salads.
Lecsó is a Hungarian speciality also found in Czech Republic, Slovak, Poland or Croatia. This vegetable stew made of hungarian wax pepper and tomatoes as well as onions, and of course paprika powder is thick, sweet, and simply a vegetarian’s dream. It can be served alone with bread, or with chicken cutlets.
Goulyas is probably the national dish of Hungary. This medieval meat and vegetables stew is seasoned with paprika and other spices such as caraway seed, cayenne or bay leaves. It can be made from lamb, beef, pork or veal and can be either served as a soup or as a stew, and dressed with lemon juice, red wine or sour cream!
Palinka is a traditional fruit brandy originating from the Transylvania Region and mainly made out of plums, apricots, apples, pears and cherries. Protected by a European Geographical indication, it can only be produced in Hungary and in four provinces of Austria.
Kolbasz designs different kinds of sausages, that come from every region of the country with their own special recipes and tastes. Kolbasz may be boiled, dried or smoked, they can be eaten as cold cuts or served in main dishes with stews and salads. These sausages typically contain bacon, ground pork, beef, lamb, paprika (surprise!) garlic, pepper, nutmeg and a huge variety of local spices. They can also be eaten directly at butcher shops, with mustard and sauerkraut.
Kürtőskalács is hollow, cylinder shaped pastry made from a sweet yeast dough roasted over charcoal. Coated with castor sugar, cinnamon or walnut, this caramelised spit cake is usually sold on festivals and outdoor events.
Fröccs is a sort of Spritzer, a mixed drink made out of white wine and carbonated water, popular in Germany, Austria and Hungary. Fröccs exist in multiple variations in Hungary with different proportions of wine and water.
Lepeny: is a sort of thick pancake garnished with sour cream, bacon and cheese. In the Sziget Festival it was grilled with a hot iron.
Lángos : Can’t say no to fried dough! Langos is flat bread made with flour, yeast, water and salt. You’ll frequently see it topped with mashed potatoes, sour cream yogurt, grated cheese, ham or sausages, but also with sugar or jam.

So, when are you going?

Hungarian Food Tour! 5 Must Try Dishes in Budapest! ???? First time trying food in Hungary. ????

We spent a day eating great Hungarian food in Budapest and came up with a fabulous list of the best things to eat and try while in Budapest Hungary.


In order we tried:

1. Langos- It is a deep-fried dough – ideally crispy on the outside and soft within – drenched in as much oil as the body can handle and slathered with a messy assembly of calorie-busting toppings. A classic lángos is topped with sour cream, garlic butter and lots of shredded cheese, but the evolution of this hearty fare has recently seen revolutionary toppings of chicken, Bolognese sauce, ratatouille, and even Nutella and whipped cream.

2. Gesztenyepüré- Considered in many countries as a gourmet food, sweet chestnuts are eaten widely and prepared in diverse ways. They can be roasted, boiled, steamed or grilled or they can be dried and milled into flour. Sweet chestnuts can be used to stuff vegetables and meat. The list of sweet and savory recipes is endless. Everyone has heard of such French delicacies as the marron glacé, chestnuts candied in sugar syrup and glazed, which is probably one of the most challenging culinary undertakings.

3. Hungarian Goulash- Goulash is a soup or stew of meat, usually seasoned with paprika and other spices. Originating from the medieval Hungary, goulash is a popular meal predominantly eaten in Central Europe but also in other parts of Europe. Its origin traces back to the 9th century to stews eaten by Hungarian shepherds.

4. Chicken Paprikash- paprikás csirke or csirkepaprikás in Hungarian) It is a popular dish of Hungarian origin and one of the most famous variations on the paprikash preparations common to Hungarian tables. The name is derived from the ample use of paprika, a spice commonly used in Hungarian cuisine.

Welcome to one of the world’s grandest cities.

Do you know how Budapest got its name? The city as it exists now is pretty young as cities go - it’ s a spritely 146 years old. Before that, there were three towns here - Buda, Obuda, and Pest, which were unified in 1873. Today, although unified in name, the city is divided into two halves by the Danube river. The western side of the Danube is known as Buda - quiet and residential - where you’ll find historic sites like Buda Castle, and Fisherman’s Bastion.

The Eastern side is known as Pest - it’s lively and modern. It’s the hub of Budapest’s economy and culture - home to the Hungarian parliament, some of Budapest’s most famous thermal baths, Ruin Bars, and everything in between.

I’m here to explore where the boundaries truly lie in this beautiful city. Budapest is unified in name, but divided in nature - the East, the West. The Buda, the Pest. Two distinct identities on opposite banks of the Danube.

Would crossing the river really make the city feel so different?

And which side of the river would get me under the skin of the real, authentic Budapest?

We explore the hills of Buda. The streets of Pest. We meet local people. Visit amazing places, try Hungarian food, and a bit of Hungarian alcohol. We sample the weird and wonderful nightlife. We soak ourselves in the city, and get to the heart of Budapest.

I came here expecting to find a city divided. But what I found was so much greater - and so much grander - than just two parts of a whole.

Our journey begins at Heathrow Airport, and after dropping the car with a handy meet and greet service it was into a lounge for a light lunch before boarding. With unlimited food and free wifi I’d definitely recommend a lounge before a flight, you can book yours with the Holiday Extras app.

Soon enough we were on the plane, and after a two and a half hour flight we touched down in Budapest. To get into town from the airport I would advise pre-booking an airport transfer with Holiday Extras. The door to door service really is the most hassle-free option.

So after a good night’s sleep, we were ready to start exploring the city. Our first stop? The hills of Buda - which meant crossing the river Danube.

Széchenyi Chain Bridge is to Budapest what Tower Bridge is to London, or Brooklyn Bridge is to New York.

It’s still a major crossing for the city. But it’s also an iconic public landmark and a popular item on the tourist checklist.

Designed by Englishman William Tierney Clark, it opened in 1849 and was the first permanent bridge across the Danube in all of Hungary. In World War 2, it was destroyed by retreating German forces during the Siege of Budapest, and only the towers remained. However, it was rebuilt, and it opened again in 1949 - exactly 100 years after its inauguration.

If you’re walking across the bridge from the Pest side towards Buda, like us, you’ll arrive at the base of the Budavari Siklo funicular railway line, which takes tourists up the hill to the castle.

You can purchase tickets at the station, but be warned, in the peak summer season the queue can stretch back quite a way and there’s no shade to speak of. So don’t forget your sunscreen!

Cable cars depart every 10 minutes and take just a few minutes to reach the top.

So, we’ve just taken the funicular up from the Szechenyi Chain Bridge, up to the Castle which is great because it’s boiling hot and it didn’t mean we had to walk it. But it also means we get to enjoy the view from up here as well.

And what an incredible view it is. From this height, the walls of the castle grounds treat you to a spectacular look back across the Eastern side of the city. It’s a fact that’s not lost on Budapest’s tourist population. Every vantage point was packed with people hunting for the perfect photo of the city skyline. Don’t worry though. With a little patience, there’s plenty of opportunity to get yourself a great photo too.

Have you ever heard of TURKMENISTAN before? If not, then get ready to learn about how strange it is here in my 170th country.

I've spent the last 24 hours roaming around the capital city of Ashgabat, and IT REMINDS ME EXACTLY OF PYONGYANG, NORTH KOREA in just about every way possible. Huge fancy buildings with very few people inside, perfectly manicured gardens and boulevards with nobody on them and a this eerie feeling that someone is watching over your shoulder 24/7.

People had told me that Ashgabat was strange, but I had no idea to what extent it was until arriving here.... Find out everything you need to know about Turkmenistan's capital in this video!

Minden héten más-más témában készül el a műsor, ezáltal kommentekben/üzenetekben lehet jelezni hogy mi legyen a következő videó témája. Amit szeretnék, hogy a műsor ne csak az általános tényeket mutassa be, hanem főleg az érdekességeket, amikről nem feltétlen hallottatok még.
