Budapest Local Customs: 231 reviews and 279 photos


Like some Asians, the Hungarians use their names in reverse order with the given name last and the family name first.

Also roman numbers are preferable to normal numbers for use in floor levels, months and districts of their cities. In demonations of thousands, they will also leave a space instead of using a comma.
