Welcome to the Hungarian Society!
Our aim is to gather together all those students who would like to learn more about Hungary and immrse themselves in the Hungarian culture. We have meetings bi-weekly, usually in Mooch or at one of the members place. The Facebook is always updated with the details of the upcoming meetup.
Are you coming from Hungary? We can help you with settling into the university. Join us now! You will meet a number of amazing people in our society.
Hungary traces its history back to the Magyars, an alliance of semi-nomadic tribes from southern Russia and the Black Sea coast that arrived in the region in the ninth century.
After centuries as a powerful medieval kingdom, Hungary was part of the Ottoman and then Habsburg empires from the 16th century onwards, emerging as an independent country again after World War I.
The Hungarian language belongs to the Finno-Ugric family and is one of the handful of languages spoken within the European Union that are not of Indo-Europ
A landlocked country, Hungary is home to Lake Balaton, the largest in central Europe, and to a large number of spa towns and hot springs.
It has especially rich traditions in folk and classical music and was the birthplace of numerous outstanding performers and composers, including Franz Liszt, Bela Bartok and Zoltan Kodaly.
Here is an amazing video (including some Hungarian inventions) to see it with your own eyes :)
