About Hungary

 

Hungary is unique and complex. As physicist Leó Szilárd once quipped about extraterrestrials: “They are already here among us: they just call themselves Hungarians.” Hungary has a non-Indo-European language and horse-and-cattle culture from its tribal originals near the Ural Mountains. The nation has a long history of struggle under the Ottomans, Austrians, then Soviets; a strong musical heritage from Liszt to Bartok; a Jewish community that made up a fourth of Budapest before waves of anti-Semitism left the largest synagogue in Europe nearly empty; and the currently largest Asian community in the EU.
