Budapest Pride 2017 will take place on 8 July. The march will start in central Budapest at 3pm and large crowds are expected. The 2016 event passed without incident, but in previous years there have been counter events which have lead to confrontation. You should follow the advice of the local authorities. More details can be found at Budapest Pride.

There are occasional political demonstrations in Budapest and elsewhere in the country. Some take place on or close to important national holidays with a political relevance, such as 15 March (anniversary of 1848 Revolution) and 23 October (anniversary of 1956 anti-Soviet Uprising). Peaceful political demonstrations have occasionally ended in violence. You should avoid all political demonstrations.

Although there is no recent history of terrorism in Hungary, attacks can’t be ruled out. See Terrorism

Around 700,000 British nationals visit Hungary each year.

Take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance before you travel.
