Hungary is a very safe country, however visitors should take normal precautions they would in any country. Compared to other countries, most Hungarian cities are relatively quiet at night. Be sure to keep your passport on you at all times as this is a legal requirement for visitors and often enforced by the police. Those who look to drive in Hungary should note that many drivers do not observe the speed limits. There is a zero tolerance policy for drunk driving, with heavy fines or even jail time being the penalty for those that do not adhere to this rule.
