Hungary is a member state of the European Union as well as the Schengen Agreement. Hitchhiking usually (but not without exceptions) is relatively easy in Hungary, especially in rural areas where people are more friendly and helpful. There, even on the roads with almost no traffic you can get a ride in a reasonable time. You can drink tap water.

In Hungary fewer people speak foreign languages than in other Central European countries. In cities, often one can speak English with younger people. Some older people might speak a bit of German or Russian. Once you get to rural areas, however, expect a language barrier. A Hungarian phrasebook may be useful.
