Edit request on 9 October 2013[edit]

The article states that Hungary has a highly developed train system. Many of the trains that Hungary uses are from old Soviet-era cars. Russian inscriptions are clearly seen all throughout many of the older cars. Most of the cars of the trains are older. Many of Hungary's train stations are over a century old and dilapidated. With the exception of the IC Vienna fast trains, Hungary's train network is reminiscent of a developing country in South America. 84.224.96.235 (talk) 20:12, 9 October 2013 (UTC)

Not done: please make your request in a "change X to Y" format. The article currently states that "Hungary has a highly developed road, railway, air and water transport system." The condition of the railway cars is not discussed. Keep in mind that the word "developed" can mean various things; for instance, it can be a synonym for "elaborate", which would have more to do with the number of lines, number of cars, total distance of track, and so on. Please feel free to suggest alternative wording, but make it in terms of a specific proposal, and make sure to include reliable sources. We can't add original research.

Hungarian economy[edit]

Could somebody please add that the Hungarian economy is ~5.64% EU spending? I think this is very important.

Update sport part[edit]

"and in swimming the men are fourth most successful overall while the women are eighth most successful overall. (See: List of Olympic medalists in swimming (men). List of Olympic medalists in swimming (women).)" This does not seems to be true according to the wiki links provided. In both list Hungary is at the 5th positions (so bot for men and women). The text should be rewritten accordingly. --Kunadam (talk) 10:13, 25 January 2014 (UTC)

Hungarian inventions[edit]

This section is inappropriate for an encyclopedic article on a country. I have no doubt that there have been many important inventions made in Hungary but listing them this way looks like an inept attempt to promote the country.

None of the other countries bordering Hungary have such a list, see: Slovakia, Romania, Serbia, Croatia, Ukraine, and Slovenia. I suggest that the list is made into a separate article like Scottish inventions and discoveries with a link from this article. Martin Hogbin (talk) 09:41, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

I disagree. I don't think there is anything wrong with having a list. The other articles of the above mentioned bordering countries also highlight their inventions and inventors just not in a form of a list. BTW you forgot to mention Austria. Szaboci (talk) 11:41, 13 April 2014 (UTC)
I will leave it up to you but to my mind having a list of inventions from a particular country looks like rather inept promotion. Martin Hogbin (talk) 13:33, 13 April 2014 (UTC)
