February in Hungary is known as "farsang," featuring unique traditions such as costume parades and the remarkable Busójárás festival. Fun costumes, delicious treats, and an unforgettable weekend with the scary masked busós all contribute to chasing away the cold weather.
As the holiday season is upon us, we wanted to take a moment to send our warmest wishes to you!
Food is a vital part of both life and culture, so to make the best out of discovering Hungary, we suggest you trying the delicious and diverse flavours of Hungarian cuisine too. As a Hungarian tradition, each August “The Cake of Hungary” contest is also organized, find out which cake has been the winner this year!
Hungary has achieved outstanding success in many sports over the past decades. Our athletes among others, have won multiple Olympic gold medals. On 6 May 1875, the Hungarian Athletics Club organised its very first outdoor sports competition of both Hungary and Europe. To commemorate the occasion, we have celebrated Hungarian Sports Day on this day since 2000.
