Public holidays in Hungary are referred to as national holidays. In addition to those that are officially sanctioned, the country observes numerous religious and political observances. All workers in Hungary are entitled to paid national holidays. Local and territorial observances are usually outlined in an employment contract or collective bargaining agreement.

In addition to the national holidays listed above, Hungary also recognises several remembrance days, which are designated as country-wide observances. Workers are usually required to work on these days, unless otherwise specified by an employment contract.

National observances include Saint Stephen’s Day, observed in honour of Hungary’s first King and the official day of the foundation of Hungary; Memorial Day for the Victims of the Holocaust; National Defence Day; Day of National Unity and Day of the Independent Hungary. Multiple spring and summer festivals are also held nationwide, usually on weekends.
