If you want to know where people in Hungary have the most money, keep on reading:


This hard to pronounce city is located in central Hungary and used to play a prominent role in the kingdom of Hungary. During the Middle Ages, this used to be the capital of the kingdom and an important trading route. Nowadays there are many cultural landmarks still left from the period and Székesfehérvár is well worth the visit for any lover of Medieval European architecture.


Győr has a strategically important location, close to the Austrian and Slovakian border, on the same road that connects Budapest to Vienna. This has led to it becoming a popular tourist destination for people from neighboring countries. However, the city’s wealth is actually derived from the car manufacturing plants around it, which provide thousands of well-paying jobs and opportunities for the locals. Győr is the most important city in the region and one of the few cities in Hungary that is seeing an increase in its population.


It should come as no surprise that the beautiful Hungarian capital is also the richest city in Hungary. As a matter of fact, there is a huge disparity between the wealth in Budapest and that in the rest of the country. Much of the industry, especially the well-paying jobs, IT, and finance are all centralized in and around Budapest. The city is also a major tourist destination, which leads to large influxes of foreign capital. The standard and the salaries in Budapest are significantly higher than in other, smaller towns, but the prices, especially for real estate are also much higher.
