    “Padló” is ‘floor’, not the ‘ground’ of a flat or a house or a room. Ground is only outside.

      Szia Steven, thank you for your comment. As a native speaker I have to disagree here – we also use “föld” for the “ground” of a flat, not only for outside. “Leesett a földre.” (It fell to the ground) for example can be both in- and outside.
      All the best,
