Hungary gets a estimated 589mm of rain/precipitation each year (As conducted by The World Bank in 2014.) The average temperature in Hungary is 30 C* in the summer and 5* C in the winter. The immediate effects this has on business is the obvious: snow days, traffic and flights getting canceled.

Political conflicts in Hungary are the fact that it is failing to complete a project of making a hydroponic dam with Danube as well as border problems with legislation and rules.

A travel tip, keep all your belongings very close and in sight when you're in an airport because certain people could and may attempt to put illegal items into your bag to have them transported to another country, the reason they use your bag is because if the bag is searched, you're the one in trouble; Reason I gave this tip particularly in Hungary is because it is one of the biggest exporters of illegal "harshly" marijuana.
