General tips for a healthy stay in Budapest

  • Dress appropriately for all weather conditions. Hungary has 4 separate seasons, a warm (sometimes hot) summer, moderate (and rainy) spring and autumn, while winter can get very cold, so prepare with clothes in advance accordingly! You can easily catch a cold if you do not pay attention to it!
  • Wash your hands regularly, especially after the use of public transport.
  • Spend plenty of time outside and exercise on a daily basis.
  • Consume plenty of fruit and veg, follow a balanced diet.
  • Don’t worry if you catch a cold, it is common and completely natural. Before visiting a doctor, try home remedies, such as warm tea with honey and lemon, cough syrups, and throat lozenges (sore throat candies). 
  • Always follow doctors’ instructions and take the prescribed medicine in the recommended quantities!
