Leisure in Hungary
Most of the Hungarian families like spending their freetime together. Of course, there is a seperation between the youth and the olders. The youth often go out, hanging with their friends, go to pubs or concerts, go to cinema, do sports or just stay at home and watching the tv, playing computer games or surfing on the internet. The olders like go hiking, go picnic or sitting in a park and relaxing and watching tv too. They often go to exhibitions.
There are a lot of opportunity to relaxation. For example: Go to wellness hotels and spending their a great time and refreshing themselves.
The most popular sport is the football in Hungary, Nowadays our football is not so good. Unfortunately, the last time when we participated in a World Cup is in 1986. We good at volleyball and waterpolo too. These 2 sports that we can do well. The hungarian waterpolo team won the olimpic games in 2008 in Peking. The hungarian national handball team gained the 2nd place in the world cup in 1986.
People who work indoors and spend most of their time sitting and doing sedentary office work can add physical activity to their lives by doing sports during their leisure time, such as playing a ball game, going camping, hiking or fishing. On the other hand, people whose jobs involve a lot of physical activity may prefer to spend their free time doing quiet, relaxing activities, such as reading books or magazines or watching TV. Some people find that collecting stamps, postcards, badges, model cars,planes or ships, bottles, or antiques are relaxing hobbies.
Free time is organized in many schools and institutions. Schools may offer many extracurricular activities including hobby groups, sports activities, and choirs. Other institutions such as retirement homes and hospitals also offer activities such as clubs and meetings for playing games or simply organized periods for conversation.
Some people do leisure activities that also have a longer-term goal. In some cases, people do a leisure activity that they hope to turn into a full-time activity (e.g., volunteer paramedics who hope to eventually become professional paramedics). Many people also study part-time in evening university or college courses, both for the love of learning, and to help their career prospects.
