Hungary is a landlocked, developed country with an advanced, high-income economy, in Central Europe. It is situated in the Pannonian Basin and it 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 capital and largest city is Budapest. Hungary is a member of the European Union, NATO, the OECD, the Visegrád Group, and is a Schengen state. The official language is Hungarian, which is part of the Uralic family and is the most widely spoken non-Indo-European language in Europe.


Cited as one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, its extensive World Heritage Site includes the banks of the Danube, the Buda Castle Quarter, Andrássy Avenue, Heroes' Square and the Millennium Underground Railway, the second oldest in the world.

Other highlights include a total of 80 geothermal springs, the world's largest thermal water cave system, second largest synagogue, and third largest Parliament building. The city attracts about 2.3 million tourists a year.


The name Szeged might come from an old Hungarian word for corner (szeg) because of the turn of the river Tisza there. Others say it derives from the Hungarian word sziget which means 'island'. Others still contend that szeg means 'dark blond' (sötétszo"kés) – a reference to the color of the water where the rivers Tisza and Maros merge.

The city has its own name in a number of foreign languages: Bulgarian, Belarusian, Russian and Ukrainian, (Seged); Croatian, Segedin; German, Szegedin / Segedin; Italian, Seghedino; Latin, Partiscum; Latvian, Segeda; Lithuanian, Segedas; Polish, Segedyn; Romanian, Seghedin; Serbian, (Segedin); Slovak, Segedín; Turkish, Segedin.


Gyor is the most important city of Northwest-Hungary, the capital of Gyor-Moson-Sopron county and lies on one of the important roads of Central Europe, halfway between Budapest and Vienna. The city is the sixth largest in Hungary and one of the five main regional centres of the country.


Kecskemet lies halfway between Budapest and Szeged, 86 kilometres from both of them, almost equal distance from the two big rivers of the country, the Danube and the Tisza.
