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)

Because this countries (exc. Austria) had no relevant participation in science and technology, due to the lack of their education system, and they were not really part of Catholic-Protestant Western civilization. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.2.104.192 (talk) 06:28, 15 May 2014 (UTC)

Size[edit]

This article could be quite interesting yet it is ridiculously long and I don't think any viewer could read it in full length. Wouldn't it be better to trim it down, especially the history section ? - ☣Tourbillon A ? 19:54, 2 May 2014 (UTC)

Because our country was more determinant than Bulgaria — Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.2.104.192 (talk) 06:26, 15 May 2014 (UTC)
Not sure if serious or...Honestly, the article could have a great outlook, but some sections are ridiculously long. I suggest merging and trimming everything in Medieval Hungary, merging the two Communist era subsections and the Football subsection inside Sport for a start. - ☣Tourbillon A ? 14:01, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

Largest non-Indo-European language in Europe[edit]

Is it really Hungarian? I think it might actually be Turkish (European part of Turkey + rest of Balkans + Germany, Austria, France...) 161.53.38.197 (talk) 14:48, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

Art, Decoration, etc.[edit]

The main article only lists FOLK ART. What about other arts?

Within folk art, the traditional Hungarian/Transylvanian peasant home décor of chairs, walls, tables, furniture etc is not mentioned. Nor is mentioned the Parta tradition, of colorful scarves, mufflers, headdresses, wedding accessories.


-- Nor is mentioned any of the non-folk art Hungary is known for. Prints, painting, sculpture, etc etc.


==[edit]

Hungary has several world noted artists, who are NOT mentioned. Just one example: Evelyn and Josef Domjan, known worldwide for their woodcuts and prints.

i'll leave it to someone who knows, to add a section with more complete information.
