Hungary (Hungarian: Magyarország [ˈmɔɟɔrorsaːɡ] (listen)) is a country in Central Europe. Crossing 93,030 square kilometres (35,920 sq mi) in the Carpathian Basin, it borders Slovakia to the north, Ukraine to the northeast, Romania to the east and southeast, Serbia to the south, Croatia and Slovenia to the southwest, and Austria to the west. Hungary is a medium-sized member state of the European Union. The official language is Hungarian, that's the most widely spoken language that is Uralic one of the few languages, and on earth to be widely spoken in Europe. Hungary's capital and largest city is Budapest; other major metropolitan areas include Debrecen, Szeged, Miskolc, Pécs, and Győr. Modern Hungary's territory was for centuries occupied by a succession of individuals, including the Avars, Huns, West Slavs and Celts, Romans, Germanic tribes. The Hungarian state's bases were established in the ninth century AD from the grand prince Árpád after the conquest of the Carpathian Basin. His great-grandson Stephen I ascended the throne in 1000, converting his kingdom to a kingdom that was Christian. Hungary became a regional power, reaching its cultural and political height in the 15th century. Following the Battle of Mohács in 1526, Hungary was partially occupied by the Ottoman Empire (1541--1699). It came under Habsburg rule at the turn of the 18th century, and later joined Austria to form the Austro--Hungarian Empire, a significant European power.The Austro-Hungarian Empire collapsed after World War I, and the subsequent Treaty of Trianon established Hungary's current boundaries, resulting in the loss of 71% of its territory, 58 percent of its population, and 32% of ethnic Hungarians. Following the interwar period that was tumultuous, Hungary joined the Axis Powers in World War II, suffering damage and casualties. Hungary became a satellite state of the Soviet Union, which led to the establishment of a socialist republic spanning four decades (1949--1989). The country gained widespread global attention because of its 1956 revolution and the seminal introduction of its previously-restricted border with Austria in 1989, which accelerated the collapse of the Eastern Bloc. On 23 October 1989, Hungary became a democratic parliamentary republic.Hungary is an OECD high-income economy, and has the world's 54th-largest economy by nominal GDP, and the 53rd-largest by PPP.
