A member of the Europe Union, Hungary is in central Europe making it landlocked from all sides and bisected by the Danube river. The country has a dry continental climate that makes for fertile, scenic landscapes. With modern cities and open-minded citizens, Hungary is fast becoming a magnet for tourist and industries alike.
Hungary’s liberal foreign investment policy has made them the recipient of huge FDI from its European partners – making Hungary a fast-developing state of the European Union with a high human development index and skilled labor force. Hungarians are innovators and the country boast of a record number of Nobel Prize laureates. From everyday items like the Rubik’s cube to the first moving picture, to the first colour television, the computer, the ballpoint pen and hologram, all can be linked to Hungarian scientists.
Hungarians are very family-oriented people and extremely loyal. Though both, local and international fast-foods are easily available in the cities, food is more of a religion than a meal and family is at the center of it all.
