Information about Hungary

Hungary became a Christian kingdom in A.D. 1000 and for many centuries served as a bulwark against Ottoman Turkish expansion in Europe.

The kingdom eventually became part of the polyglot Austro-Hungarian Empire, which collapsed during World War I.

The country fell under Communist rule following World War II.

In 1956, a revolt and an announced withdrawal from the Warsaw Pact were met with a massive military intervention by Moscow.

Under the leadership of Janos KADAR in 1968, Hungary began liberalizing its economy, introducing so-called "Goulash Communism."

Hungary held its first multiparty elections in 1990 and initiated a free market economy.

It joined NATO in 1999 and the EU five years later.

In 2011, Hungary assumed the six-month rotating presidency of the EU for the first time.
