|The national flag of Hungary||Borderline map of Hungary|
|Flag description: three equal horizontal bands of red (top), white, and green; the flag dates to the national movement of the 18th and 19th centuries, and fuses the medieval colors of the Hungarian coat of arms with the revolutionary tricolor form of the French flag; folklore attributes virtues to the colors: red for strength, white for faithfulness, and green for hope; alternatively, the red is seen as being for the blood spilled in defense of the land, white for freedom, and green for the pasturelands that make up so much of the country.||Border length: total: 2,106 km.

Budapest has a glorious history, having once rivaled its neighboring Vienna under the Austro-Hungarian monarchy. But don’t let the city’s rich past fool you: The Budapest of today buzzes with a culture that is becoming more and more dynamically European. A vibrant young generation is proof of this. While the political elite continues to argue about the past, the youth are concentrating on the future. They’re becoming multilingual; they’re creating new film festivals and fashion shows. The scene they’re developing is vibrant and fun – if a bit secretive and cliquish. While it might take some time to enter into their world, it’s a pleasurable journey in the end. They are playing catchup, living off the seat of their pants.

Hungary is a landlocked country sharing borders with Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Yugoslavia, Romania, and Ukraine. It is a region of plains ringed by the high mountain ranges of neighboring countries. The main topographical feature is the Great Plain or Great Alföld.
The Danube and its tributaries, being navigable, form an important part of the country’s transportation system and are the source of most of the country’s water for domestic and industrial needs. About 18 percent of the country covered with forest.
Hungary has traditionally been an agricultural country and around half the land area is suitable for agriculture, although irrigation is necessary to ensure productivity. Hungary is relatively poor in mineral resources and heavily reliant upon imports of oil and coal to supply its energy needs although over 40 percent of electricity generated by nuclear power.
