Hungarian Tourism To Break New Record This Year
All tourism records will be again broken this year following the record-breaking year of 2018, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said at the official opening of the new Párisi Udvar Hotel in central Budapest. 

He added that having been on the brink of collapse nine years ago, Hungary’s economy is now vigorous and tourism has a large part to play in it.

Budapest is a top European tourism destination, he noted.

The capital has undergone considerable development, he said, adding that the number of cities directly accessible by flight from Budapest has grown from 86 to 147 in five years.

Budapest is one of the world’s safest cities in a world where security is increasingly prized, he said.

The renovation of the more than 100 year-old listed building cost over 13 billion forints (EUR 39m), with an 8 billion forint loan granted by Hungary’s Eximbank, he added.
