'''Hungary''' is a member state of the [[European Union]] as well as the [[Schengen Agreement]]. Hitchhiking usually (but not without exceptions) is relatively easy in Hungary, especially in rural areas where people are more friendly and helpful. There, even on the roads with almost no traffic you can get a ride in a reasonable time. You can drink tap water.
