Calling from Hungary to foreign countries is pretty much the same as anywhere else. Almost all foreign countries can be direct-dialled. For calling local numbers, no prefix codes are required.
To call a local number within your area, dial the number only. You don't have to dial the area prefix code.
The telephone numbers in the capital Budapest are seven-digit. If you want to call a number in Budapest from another area in Hungary, dial (061) and then the actual telephone number. The area code of the capital is (1). The area code of Gödöllő is (28), and the local numbers are six-digit.
To call another county, dial (06), then the two-digit respective area code and then the six-digit local number.
To call from abroad to a number in Hungary, dial your international access number (usually 00 or +), followed by the country code of Hungary (36), then the area code and the number (e.g., if you call Gödöllő: 003628... or +3628 ...)
To make a call from a mobile phone to a fixed-line number, you always have to dial (06) and the two-digit area prefix.
