Here are the long weekends in Hungary in 2020
On the basis of the Labour Code, it is the Finance Minister’s task every year to set working arrangements relating to holidays. The relevant decree was published in the Hungarian Gazette late on Tuesday.

Accordingly, 21 August (Friday) and 24 December (Thursday) will be public holidays. These mark the only four-day weekends besides Easter next year. The two working Saturdays will be 29 August and 12 December.

There will be another four-day weekend, between April 10 and 13 (Good Friday and Easter). There will be also three-day weekends, as Whit Monday (Pentecost Monday) is on Monday, of course, and both 1 May (Labour Day) and 23 October (commemorating the Revolution of 1956) fall on a Friday. As for the national holidays, 15 March (commemorating the outbreak of the Hungarian Revolution in 1848) falls on a Sunday and so does 1 November (All Saints Day).
