Hungary was 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 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 is scheduled to accede to the EU along with nine other states on 1 May 2004. In an April 2003 referendum, 84 percent voted in favor of joining the EU.

Our tip:

From Budapest tourists can reach most of the country in one- or two-day excursions. Staying with the closer destinations, we recommend the Danube Bend. Small towns rich in historical and cultural monuments, interesting museums, picturesque landscapes, hills just inviting you to climb them - north of Budapest both sides of the Danube offer many things to see.
