Hungary is small landlocked central European country with rich history and proud people.
Hungary is located almost exactly in the center of Europe and borders with seven countries: Austria, Slovakia, Ukraine, Romania, Croatia, Slovenia and Serbia. This along with its hospitable attitude makes it one of the best places from which to begin an Eastern European round trip. It is both European and distinctly Hungarian, incorporating a mixture of history and the present-day. The country proudly upholds its Magyar traditions, culture and arts, but is attentive to what is new and fashionable in the outside world.
Hungary was inhabited by the Magyars, an equestrian nomadic tribe, in the 8th - 9th century.
