Budapest's territory is 525 square kilometers in total. The city is the capital of Hungary, a land-locked county in Central Europe sharing its borders with Slovakia, Ukraine, Romania, Serbia, Croatia, and Austria. The country is overall mostly flat, with low mountains in the North. It is 93,030 square kilometers in size and has a population of 9.7 millions people in 2019.

Expats will find the job market similar to those in western territories. The hours are 5 days a week, Monday through Friday, with 40 working hours each week. The annual leave usually amounts to 21 days.

The job market can be tough, especially for expats, due to the economy. However, there is a high demand for work in technology, telecommunications, and IT. Other popular jobs include accounting, auditing, and project management. Many young and inexperienced expats choose to teach English, which is very popular in Hungary and always needed.
