This isn't surprising given Hungary's geography. The country is located on a broad plain making for easy transversing; central Europe's major river (Danube) bisects the country; and Hungary is on the way to somewhere else, no matter which direction you are going. Traveling through this area was easy given the topography and the river, so the country was a crossroads but also easily invaded. After we left Budapest we read in a guidebook that the DNA of the Hungarian people is the most diverse of any nation.
I don't have any good photos of the people of Hungary but here are some of the city we took while walking along the Danube at dusk.
