10/09/2017 Discover Hungary

DISCOVER HUNGARY offers an in-site into one of the most battled countries in Europe.
Invaded by the Magyars in 895 AD, consolidated under King Stephen I in 1000, pillaged by the Mongols in 1241, divided by the Turks in 1526, it fell under the Austro-Hungarian empire in the 19th century only to declare its Independence in 1989 after five centuries of strife, war, and conquest. Today it boasts a thriving economy and is a bastion of creativity in the arts and sciences.
