Budapest is one of the most visited European cities. This is due to the rich historical sites, the thermal baths, the various party places and last but not least, because a tourist gets a lot more from his money.
The Hungarian Forint (HUF) is pretty weak compared to other currencies, and the Hungarian government likes this. Mainly due to tourism and economical reasons. We have no intentions changing this. And this is why your Euro, Dollar or Pound is worth way more when you travel to Hungary.
