If you didn’t know it already, it is currently possible to enjoy some snow in Budapest. As a tourist, you might not enjoy it, but the local population still try to rejoice in the snow.
Every year you have a couple of days with snow in Budapest. We are never speaking about extreme amounts of snow, but simply a thin layer that makes the trees look green, and the kids able to throw a couple of snowballs. At the moment it seems as if January 14th, 15th, 16th and who knows how many more days will be those days in 2018 in which we enjoyed some snow.
What should you do on a cold winter day like the one today in Budapest? We have written an article on that earlier, so if you want some suggestions, check out this article. The article referred to is about the Christmas markets, but it contains general advice on what to do in Budapest on a snowy day.
Do not forget that the Winter Olympics will be arranged in South Korea in a month from now. The Hungarians don’t care about Winter sports, but you might care about it, so if you want to watch the Winter Olympics while in Budapest, you better turn on Eurosport 1 and Eurosport 2 on the TV in your hotel room, and you will most likely be able to watch all the highlights.

The Hungarians in the Winter Olympics
Based on the information we have just found, it seems as if there will be a total of 12 Hungarians participating in the Winter Olympics 2018. 10 of those will take part in speed skating (5 women, 5 men), one in ice skating and one stand alone in speed skating. We can for sure forget about medals, but at least there will be someone from Hungary taking part in the Winter Games.
