Radiation in Hungary
Radiation can be fascinating, scary or simply boring. I think we can classify Hungary’s radiation in that latter category. No spectacular values, just average stuff.
That’s why we only took two pictures of the Geiger and truthfully, there was sooo much cool stuff to do in Budapest that we neglected our precious device.
After doing some easy background reading on radiation, you will return to this post as a pro and know how to evaluate the figures on the Geiger at a glance.
07th September 2012. At the window of our first flat in Budapest, not far from the city centre on Népszínház utca, Pest side.
The windows were covered by a mosquito net, which was only one of many bonus features of the bachelor flat. We also rented a flat on the other side of the Danube river, in a pretty and quiet area of Buda. Radiation levels were overall just average on both sides of Budapest.
16th October 2012. Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport, on the plane, before take off.
Values get very spectacular during a flight – that’s were to look for some scary-sensational radioactive entertainment.
