Yesterday the first snow came to town, and today it continued. It is not remaining, but still it serves as proof to the fact that it can be quite cold in Hungary, and in Budapest. People from Hungary are often amazed as I tell them that Scandinavian tourists coming to Budapest often find themselves freezing. The fact is, they often do. Zero degrees celsius in Budapest can feel just as cold as minus 15 celsius in Stockholm, probably because of the wind, the Danube and so on…

So, if you are preparing to come to Budapest, rather prepare yourself for very cold, then for quite warm… if you put on to much you can just take of some clothes instead. We have a site presenting the average temperatures in Budapest, so you can use it for some help, but it can not be trusted to much.
