Shooting in Hungary

Weather and Geography

Considering Film & Photo Shooting Aspects

Hungary is a country right in the middle of Europe with continental climate, which means that we have all the four seasons. Hot and sunny summers, romantic and colorful autumns, cold and sometimes snowy winters as well as blossoming springs.

Sunny Hours in Hungary

During our film and photo shoots we can always find the right part of the day to shoot the scenes where sun is needed as the weather is pretty much predictable. As the summer comes, the number of sunny hours increase. In autumn and winter the sun angle is lower so we have more dramatic and sharper lights during this period of the year.


At the same time the length of the days drastically change during the year. Our longest day is 21 June when we have more than 16 hours of daylight and the darkest day of the year is 21 December, when we only have a bit more than 8 hours of daylight.

Rain and Snow in Hungary

The amount of rain and snow is moderate in the region. In general in late spring and early summer we have more rainfalls but we rarely have multiple rainy days in a row. It never happened that we had to cancel or postpone a shoot, because of rain or any other weather issue. In winter we have snow sometimes, but not for the whole season and not in every year.

Geography of Hungary

Hungary is a landlocked country so it is is not bordered by sea, though we do have Central Europe's largest freshwater lake called the Balaton. In addition many smaller lakes and rivers can be found in the country, not to mention the River Danube, which goes on for more than 400 kilometers in the country.

Lake Balaton

Many people think that Hungary has high mountains, but that is not true, as mountains that reach the height of 300 meters or more cover less than 2% of the country. The highest point in Hungary is Kékes with its 1,014 meters.

Nature in Hungary

Pilis Mountains

The nature in Hungary absolutely fits the four seasons continental climate. We have endless lush meadows, hills, blossoming trees and and deep forests.

Almost 20% of the country is covered by different types of forests: beech, birch, oak or pine. In Hungary from the end of November to the beginning of April the nature goes to sleep and then there are no leaves on the trees except for the evergreens of course.
