Unfortunately, there are many homeless people in Budapest. It is difficult to say how many there are, but officials guess there are probably between 5 and 10 thousand of them. They live their lives in underpasses, parks and other public places. Even though there are social institutions to provide a heated place and warm food for the homeless during the cold winter nights, people who have fallen out of the bloodstream of society can hardly get back to their normal lives.

Tourists usually meet the homeless of Budapest in the crowded underpasses in the city center. They don't cause any problem, they do not bug the tourists. We recommend you to give one of them about 500 HUF (2 EURO) during your visit to our city, to help him/her buy one day's warm food, making at least one day of his/her life a little better. | Contact us
