White linen pants and black thongs

The Hungarian climate is continental temperate. Springtime is glorious, and you know it’s arrived when the female half of the population uncorks its warm-weather look, best described as “barely there.” The Hungarian summer is warm, sunny and unusually long, but the resorts are crowded in late July and August. Autumn is beautiful, particularly in the hills around Budapest and in the Northern Uplands. Winter, meantime, is cold – yet not as damp as the UK, and mercifully short. Anytime is a good time to visit Budapest: the party runs year-round, from the the outdoor cafés and clubs in the warm months to the raucous cellar bars that are packed clear through wintertime.
