A note on Currency

While Hungary is part of the European Union, it does not use the euro as its currency (although hotels and sightseeing tours often quote prices in euros). The Hungarian currency is the forint, which you will see abbreviated to "HUF" and "Ft" interchangeably. While HUF is the internationally recognized currency code, locals favor the abbreviation "Ft." Note: nobody calls it "HUF" in speech; just refer to forints when talking about money.
