Hungary is a landlocked country in Central Europe. It is situated in the Carpathian Basin and is bordered by Slovakia to the north, Ukraine and Romania to the east, Serbia and Croatia to the south, Slovenia to the southwest and Austria to the west. The country’s capital and largest city is Budapest.
Hungary is a member of the European Union, NATO, the OECD, the Visegrád Group, and the Schengen Agreement. The official language is Hungarian, which is the most widely spoken non-Indo-European language in Europe.
Following periods of successive habitation by Celts, Romans, Huns, Slavs, Gepids, and Avars, the foundation of Hungary was laid in the late 9th century. The country became a middle power and part of the Western world by the 12th century. Hungary became part of the Habsburg Empire, and later formed part of the Austro–Hungarian Empire (1867–1918).
Hungary’s current borders were first established in 1920. The country lost 71% of its territory, 58% of its population, and 32% of ethnic Hungarians. On the side of the Axis Powers, Hungary also suffered great damages in World War II. It endured a four decades long communist dictatorship from 1947–89.
In 1989 Hungary again became a democratic parliamentary republic.
