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.
Some people speak English, some speak German. Once you get to rural areas, though, expect to experience a language barrier.
Hungarian license plates do not contain any marking about where the car comes from. Typical and most common license plates have three black letters and three black numbers on a white background. Police has plates starting with RB, and the taxi ones are yellow.
