"The money is the Hungarian..." Budapest Local Custom Tip by acemj

Budapest Local Customs: 232 reviews and 280 photos


The money is the Hungarian Forint. There are foreign exchanges at the airport and all over the city, but I just used ATMs (however, they're not everywhere like in the States- you can get an ATM map at the tourist offices).
Check Virtual Tourist's currency converter for the latest exchange rates.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
