Hungary is an eastern European country with a population of 9.9 million. It borders Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Romania, Ukraine and Romania.
A former-Eastern Bloc country, Hungary held its first multiparty elections in 1990. Its capital city is Budapest. Hungary has belonged to NATO since 1990. In 2004, it joined the EU and, three years later, the bloc's border-free Schengen Area. This is a collection of DW's latest content on Hungary.

This week, Hungary welcomed the first Israeli Prime Minister to visit the country since the collapse of communism in 1989. Prime Minister Victor Orban stood alongside Benjamin Netanyahu as he said that his country's collaboration with Nazi Germany during World War II was a "mistake" and a "sin" as it failed to protect its Jewish community. Correspondent Stefan Bos has more about the visit.
Netanyahu has been caught by journalists imploring central European leaders to campaign for Israel in the EU. Conference organizers quickly cut his microphone when they realized his closed-door comments were broadcast.
Immigration remains a major issue in Hungary and it's spilled over into some new poster campaigns. Viktor Orban's government has been hitting out at the Hungarian-American billionaire George Soros who supports various human rights groups. Critics say the campaign could encourage anti-semitism, since Soros is a Jewish Holocaust survivor. Our correspondent Stefan Bos told Emma Wallis more.

A trial has begun in Hungary in which four men are charged with murdering seventy one refugees found dead in a truck in Austria nearly two years ago. The victims were men, women and children from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, being smuggled into Europe by people they had paid. As Kerry Skyring reports from Vienna neither the tragedy nor the trial has stopped the trafficking of migrants into Europe.

The Hungarian parliament has approved a law imposing strict regulations on foreign-funded NGO's, despite protests against the measures. Prime Minister Viktor Orban said the law was necessary to stop foreign funded NGOs interfering with domestic policy. His critics say that this is a move to crackdown on independent voices. Emma Wallis talks to correspondent Stefan Bos in Budapest.
