Coronavirus news of Hungary and the Free Budapest Walking Tours Team

As we have been doing in the last one year, we are shortly summarizing the most important Covid19 pandemic related news of our country. (See the previous news amongst our blog articles: Trip to Budapest Blog )

Firstly, please note that we are still not running our Free Budapest Walking Tours, since the borders of the country are still closed. However, hopefully the time of our reopening is coming closer and closer… fingers crossed for a relatively free summer season!

There has been a slow opening going on in the last couple of weeks, they have been easing the Covid-19 restrictions, because our vaccination program has been going quite well. There are about 3.5 million Hungarian people who got at least the first dose of the vaccines ( we are using 5 different ones at the moment).

Here are the latest changes to our restrictions:

  • From this Saturday, the 24th of April 2021 the open air terraces of restaurants and cafes can reopen. Waiters have to wear a face mask, guests do not.
  • Also from this Saturday, the curfew will be from 11pm till 5am (instead of 10p-5am)

The government said that the next easing of the restrictions can happen when there are 4 million and 4.5 million Hungarian people got at least the first dose of the coronavirus vaccination. Next it will be theaters, cinemas, hotels, accommodations, probably gyms, pools that can reopen. We will keep you updated as usual!
