Any info/tips for Hungary?

Hi

Planning next trip, and thinking of covering 3 countries we know NOTHING about. And I mean NOTHING. So checking if the collective on MHF have quick n easy access to the information and any other tips! Hungary; Slovakia; and Czech Republic. (Going via Germany which we "know", so maybe 3-4-5 weeks total in the 3 newbies!)

- Is Hungary in the EU? And does it have Euro? (yeah yeah )
- Are there many Aires?
- Is wild camping permitted?
- Any non-standard driving requirements such as motorway taxes; stickers; etc (transit conversion 2.8t)

And importantly!!
- Top things to see / do
- Top places to go
- Any recommended guide books?
- Any recommended websites with further information?

We love the outdoors; parties and activities and hate churches and too much tourist tat.

We will have ACSI2009; ACSI2009 DVD; Camping Cheques; 2009 BoardAtlas; and 2008 Camperstop.
Any other must-have books/databases of camping stops?

(We have used and are pretty much googled out :'( ; and we've seached the archives, but were hoping for any other first hand tips!)


(PS - sorry for multiple post - thought it'd be easier to post in each country for others.)
(PPS - Blogs of Motorhomer http://www.motorhomeandaway.co.uk/ and Erik http://eric-on-tour.blogspot.com/200...-republic.html are superb and guiding us that way!)

THANK YOU!!!

Hi Active Campers

Amazed you've not received any responses from the experienced travellers out there. It was on my list of things to do to ask about Hungary as we hope to be there this summer as part of our year travelling. We'll be coming through Slovenia to that side of Hungary and hope to spend our time walking or cycling.

Hungary is in the European Union, but doesn't use the Euro yet, is as much as I know.

www.hungarytourism.hu
is a useful site. They have some free brochures you can download or have sent to you.

Hope some more replies appear soon.
good wishes
