Some 36% of the adult population rarely go out to relax because they cannot afford it, according to a recent OTP Bank survey, writes profitline.hu.

However, nearly a quarter of those who regularly have fun spend between HUF 10,000 and HUF 20,000 during a joint program. When having fun with friends, it is also typical for one person to take on the role of paying.

OTP Bank's recent representative survey also revealed which programs are the most popular among the Hungarian population. While 30% of those surveyed prefer cafes and other sit-down places when they want to relax, nearly a quarter go to friends or house parties, while 22% prefer restaurants.

A little more than one-fifth of the adult population goes to a concert, and 18% to a theater, museum, or other cultural programs.
