Severity: Warning

Message: date(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone.

Hungary Currency


Although Hungary is part of the EU it does not use the Euro; the official currency is the Hungarian Forint (HUF). It is divided into 100 fillér. Most international credit cards are accepted at shops, restaurants and hotels. Banks usually open between 8am and 3pm on weekdays and some are open on Saturdays, while ATMs are available in towns and cities throughout the country.
