Where to retire in Europe?

August 21, 2017

Affordable comforts

Have you always had the dream of retiring in Europe? Are you looking for a place that not only has the charm of the Old World, but is also a cheap European country? If the answer is yes, Hungary is the ideal choice for you.

Hungary – one of the most affordable European countries

If you are thinking about relocating to Europe, when choosing a country, it is worth considering what you can get for your money.

Hungary is one of the most affordable places to retire in Europe. According to the latest statistics, Hungary is the 9th cheapest country in Europe (and the 4th cheapest country of the European Union) regarding consumer goods, transport and energy prices.

Hungary is not a member of the Euro zone, so locals use their own currency, Hungarian Forint (HUF) instead.

Property in Hungary

The property market is booming in Hungary, so it is worth considering buying a home instead of just renting one. Whether your goal is to invest in real estate and make a profit that way, or to find your new home, Hungary is the ideal place for you.  You can choose from newly built, modern houses as well as beautifully renovated historical buildings.

Traveling in Europe

Of course, we should not forget about the fact that Hungary is located in the heart of Europe, so if you wish to discover the Old Continent in your retired years, you can do that from  Hungary as your European headquarters, without having to pay for the cost of living in Western Europe.

Hungary has great infrastructure, so you can easily travel to the big European cities in just a few hours. The airlines available at the Budapest airport vary from economic to luxurious, so you can decide what would be the most suitable for you.
