What To Wear In Hungary
To sum it up - café culture with a lively kick
- Casual clothes reign supreme - really anything is acceptable to wear here.
- Jeans are always popular and, teamed with lighter layers for the summer (e.g. a vest or t-shirt) and warmer ones for the winter (try a long-sleeved top with a jumper), they will serve as a versatile base to your wardrobe.
- It is very much a typical European style of dress so casual or smart casual will work well.
- Add a smarter outfit - a smart dress or trousers and shirt - for more formal occasions or restaurants and you're all set to go, but for sightseeing trips casual will work best.
- Pack a swimsuit and flip flops if you plan on visiting the famous thermal baths.
- To get around and see as many sites as possible during your trip you're likely to do a good deal of walking so be sure to pack some comfortable walking shoes.
- You will need heels with you, but save them for evening dining or nightclubbing.
- May, June and November can be really wet so pack a raincoat and umbrella if visiting then.
- December, January and February are particularly cold, so pack warm layers, a coat, gloves, a hat and warm scarf, and to keep your feet warm pack boots with a water resistant sole. A furry lining or trim will keep you even cozier.
- It is a dry cold here too so make sure you take good care of your skin.
- Stay healthy on your trip - travellers' diarrhoea can affect as many as 50% of people travelling abroad. We've tried and recommend Bimuno Travel Aid pastilles to help support your digestive health.
