Enjoy the view in Pécs, Hungary

“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.” ~Jawaharlal Nehru

And I totally agree!  For today’s article, we are very lucky to see Hungary with the help of our friend Niels. There are many other places that he had been to but he chose Hungary for his first contribution. Now, if you have some questions about his trip, I took the liberty of asking him myself. 🙂

COUNTRY NAME:

Conventional short form: Hungary
Local long form: none
Local short form: Magyarorszag
Etymology: the Byzantine Greeks refered to the tribes that arrived on the steppes of Eastern Europe in the 9th century as the “Oungroi,” a name that was later Latinized to “Ungri” and which became “Hungari”; the name originally meant an “[alliance of] ten tribes”; the Hungarian name “Magyarorszag” means “Land of the Magyars”; the term may derive from the most prominent of the Hungarian tribes, the Megyer
