Weather

Hungary is in the temperate zone, in the heart of Europe and has a continental climate. This means that the seasons are usually well-defined with Jul and Aug being the hottest months (28-32ºC; 82-90F) and Dec and Jan the coldest when temperatures may drop to -15ºC (5F). Spring and autumn are generally quite mild with temperatures ranging from 15ºC (59F) to 25ºC. Average sunshine between Apr and Sep is in excess of eight hours a day.

The best weather for traveling is between May and Sep, when it is warm and there’s lots of sunshine. As Hungary is a flat area in the Carpathian Basin it is quite well-protected from the extremes of weather by the mountain ranges of the Alps and the Carpathian Mountains surrounding it almost completely. Rainfalls are quite moderate throughout the year (average level is 600 mm (23 inches) per year). Rainy seasons are mainly the beginning of spring and late fall but most of the precipitation falls during the occasional summer thunderstorms.
