Pest Central District Court

Pest Central District Court

The Pest Central District Court in Budapest

The Pest Central District Court (PKKB, Pesti Központi Kerületi Bíróság) is one of 119 local courts in Hungary and one of the biggest in Europe.

The address is: 1055 Budapest, Markó u. 25, phone (switchboard): 00-36-1-354 6000. You should not count on being understood in English. 

The local courts – and thus the PKKB – are generally competent in criminal cases, unless the law expressly order otherwise. This is the case for felonies with a punishment of up to 15 years imprisonment. Crimes against life belong within the competence of the regional courts. 

The penal power of a single judge goes up to 8 (!) years of imprisonment, above that a single professional judge with two lay judges will sit.  

In civil cases the local courts have competence up to value of 30 million HUF, which corresponds to about 96.000,- €, 75.000,- GBP or 108.000,- USD (!). 

In case you have a procedure before the PKKB or any other Hungarian Court, you can contact us here. I can plead your case before any Hungarian Court.
