Removals to Hungary | Shipping to Hungary | Moving House to Europe

Since 2004, when Hungary joined the EU there has been a steady growth in removals to Hungary by UK residents attracted to the burgeoning industries of luxury vehicle production, renewable energy systems, high-end tourism and information technology. As a result, at Dolphin Movers we carry out frequent shipping to Hungary, in particular to the capital, Budapest.

While most of the requests we receive for removals to Hungary are for private moves for work or lifestyle, we can also cater for commercial moves. Whether you need shipping to Hungary for a small flat or a multi-office business, Dolphin can help, including packing, unpacking, storage and insurance as required.

About Hungary

Geography and Demographics
Hungary is an Eastern European country of nearly 10 million people, surrounded by land and sharing borders with Austria, Slovakia, Ukraine, Romania, Serbia, Croatia and Slovenia. Hungary's main cities are Budapest (the capital), Debrecen, Szeged, Miskolc, Pecs, Gyor, Nyiregyhaza, Kecskemet and Szekesfehervar. The international airports are Budapest, Debrecen, Sarmellek, Gyor-Per and Pecs-Pogany and domestic airports in Fertoszentmiklos, Nyiregyhaza, Siofok and Szeged. Flights between the UK and Hungary take about 2 hours and 30 minutes.

Economy
Hungary's major industries are mining, construction products, food, clothes, chemicals (especially pharmaceuticals) and motor vehicles. Hungary's chief agricultural products are wheat, corn, sunflower seed, potatoes, sugar beet, meat and dairy products. The main exports are machinery and transport equipment, consumer products, agricultural goods, chemicals, clothing, iron and steel and wine.

History
The Hungarian nation was officially born in 1000 AD when Magyar prince Stephen was crowned 'Christian King' using a crown sent by the Pope from Rome. In 1241 the country became occupied by the Mongolian Tatars. They stayed for a year, which stopped the progress of Hungary for over a century. In 1526 Hungary was invaded by the Turks who stayed for 150 years. In 1541 the country was divided into three parts: the Habsburgs ruled the west, the centre was governed by the Turks and the south-east Transylvanian region, which today is part of Romania, was the stronghold of Hungarian culture. The Habsburg Empire continued until 1848 when there was a popular uprising, which resulted in the two-fold Austrian Hungarian monarchy.

Up until World War I, Hungary was a division of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. It lost over two-thirds of its land and population after World War I when the Allies imposed the Trianon Peace Agreement. After World War II, Hungary was governed by Communists and in 1956 Moscow reacted to a widespread revolt by pulling out of the Warsaw Pact with a huge military involvement. During the Gorbachev years, Hungary was a strong advocate for the dissolution of the Warsaw Pact and progressively moved in the direction of a multiparty democracy and a market-oriented economy. Subsequent to the breakdown of the USSR in 1991, Hungary fostered close political and economic alliances with Western Europe, becoming part of NATO in 1999. It is now at the forefront of the forthcoming growth of the EU.

Landmarks and Attractions
Landmarks and attractions include Fisherman's Bastion (Halaszbastya), Chain Bridge (Szechenyi lanchid), Heroes' Square, Szabadsag hid (Liberty Bridge), Vorosmarty Square (Vorosmarty ter), Anonymus Szobor (Anonymous Statue), Statue of St Stephen, Tram Number 2, Elisabeth Bridge and Gul Baba's Tomb (Gul Baba Turbeje). For the inquisitive and daring, evidence of remains of the 40-year Soviet inclined establishment can be discovered.

The capital city, Budapest, has been named by Time Magazine, the International Council of Monuments and Sites and the New York Times Magazine as one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. Budapest offers a superb shopping experience and some of the finest nightlife in Europe.

Hungary boasts a popular wine region, lively café culture and some excellent restaurants. Hungarian food and wine is there to be relished. Popular Hungarian dishes include goulash, dumplings, goose liver, roast goose leg and palacsinta (sweet and savoury Hungarian pancakes).

Expats in Hungary
Expats thinking about moving house to Europe will find that Hungary is ideally placed for exploring the rest of the European continent. Hungary provides an intoxicating blend of western and eastern cultures. Many expats find jobs in the thriving private sector which has grown as a result of Hungary's move to a market economy in the 1990s. It is a superb destination for those moving house to Europe, offering warm summers, plentiful economic prospects and a relaxed way of life.
