The government has set up an institute specialising in the research of Hungarian history and the development of tourism and education.
The institute, known as the Institute for Hungarian Studies (Magyarságkutató Intézet), was established on Jan. 1 after the government approved last November a decree on its founding drafted by Human Resources Minister Miklós Kásler.
Historical research at the institute will focus on the era preceding the 9th-century Hungarian conquest of the Carpathian Basin, the origin of the Hungarian people, the Hungarian conquest itself and medieval Hungary.
The institute will also focus on the study of the internal structure of the Hungarian language, its peculiarities and its connections to Hungarian culture as a whole. It will also publish a journal.
Kásler has appointed Gábor József Horváth-Lugossy as the institute’s director-general.
At least half a dozen legendary stories are known about the fearful Hungarians who have raided half of Europe and kept the rest in terror just by their reputation. There are another half-dozen stories about the mysterious Hungarian Conquest, involving mythical and magical creatures. There is no certain version of the truth, but you might choose your favourite one if you continue reading HERE.
