Last week we wrote about how the financial crisis is impacting the forint. The bottom point was when 1 Euro was equal to 285-286 forints. This week the forint has again been gaining strength, and this morning at 9:30 (you can see the clock) my Windows Vista desktop told me that 1 Euro is equal to 255,5 forints. For the Hungarians these are good news, and hopefully the forint will grow further in strength. For tourists it is not that good, as you need to use more money to buy the products in Hungary!
