Those moving within the country are still typically heading west, according to OTP Ingatlanpont's recent analysis based on Central Statistical Office data, writes the leading business daily Világgazdaság.

Last year, traffic did not reach a peak, but migration remained brisk.

Some 287,000 people changed domestic residences in 2022, meaning the number of people moving was 7% below the period after the COVID restrictions were lifted.

Persistently rising prices significantly reduced the attractiveness of the traditional destination areas, while new winners emerged in cheaper, previously more unattractive regions.
