Maps of Hungary

Why maps of Hungary?

Slovakia, known by its historical name as Upper Hungary, was the part of the Hungarian Kingdom for more than one thousand years. Its capital, Bratislava or Pressburg or Pozsony, became for 250 years the capital of the Hungarian Kingdom. The Slovaks and their predecessors, together with the Magyars, Germans, Croats and other nationalities did create side by side the statehood of St. Stephen, the first king of the Hungarian Kingdom. Without Upper Hungary or Slovakia, the historical success of the Kingdom would never exist. Only 19th-century nationalism of Magyars, Slovaks, Romanians, Croats did bring the death of the Kingdom. Now, it is history but is our history, all of us. I hope these maps will be not the source of further quarrels, but the source of learning and understanding our peaceful and friendly future, the future of Central Europe within the European Union.
