What is the overall climate: is it extremely hot or cold, wet or dry, at any time of year, for example?

Four seasons. Winters are supposed to be snowy but we had three very mild winters with barely a week of snow in the city (more on the hill where locals ski). Summer can be hot and humid (much less than D.C. though). Very sunny (like Barcelona or D.C.). - Dec 12, 2017
Four seasons like anywhere in the middle of the U.S. Winters can be snowy (more than D.C., less than Michigan) and summer can be hot (like Missouri or Oklahoma). Less humid than DC or Midwest. - Jan 23, 2012
From mid-September to April 1, it is cold, grey and really kind of depressing. But April 1, the skies clear and the city becomes alive. If you can make it through the winter months, you will definitely be rewarded with a beautiful and warm spring/summer. - Apr 28, 2010
It is definitely 4 seasons: a really nice summer, fall, and spring. And the winter was cold, but nothing that was unmanageable. I hate the cold and love Texas heat, so it wasn't bad. - Dec 29, 2009
Pleasant-to-beautiful summers and falls with sometimes brutal winters. Weather is warmer, milder, and more polluted in Pest than in Buda. - Feb 24, 2008
