Situated on the centre of Europe Hungary has been at the heart of central European history since the Romans fortified the Danube as the north eastern extreme of the Roman Empire. Hungary is famous for Goulash, Hussars and Attila the Hun, who was not related to present day Hungarians who descend from the Magyars. The early Kings of Hungary played their part in the constant waring over territory that was the norm in Medieval Europe. At one time they ruled land in present day Croatia and even had Hungarian ports but today Hungary is land locked land its only access to the sea is via the Danube River down to the Black Sea. In 1526 the Kingdom of Hungary led by King Louis II of Hungary and Bohemia were defeated by forces of the Ottoman Empire led by Sultan Suleyman the Magnificent. Louis and his heir lost his life in the battle and ended the reign of Kings in Hungary. The Turkish Ottomans ruled over Hungary until 683 when they were defeated at the battle of Vienna and the Habsburg Austrian Empire took Hungary. The two countries formed into the Austro Hungarian Empire under the Austrian Hapsburg’s and Hungary benefited by a wave of new palaces and towns being rebuilt which has endowed Hungary with some fine Baroque and Neo-Classic cities. Before Hungary was on the loosing side in the World Wars Hungary was 10 times bigger than today so Hungarian speakers and culture can be found in all its previous territory in neighboring countries. After the second world war Hungary became part of the Eastern block but was actually one of the favored countries by the Russians even after its uprising of 1956. Since socialism fell Hungary has been building itself a modern identity. It has a unique language in Europe and a long tradition in the art and sciences. Hungary has produced more than its fair share of Nobel prize winners and its mathematicians are legendary.
