Hungary at a glance – Hungarian cultural sites on the UNESCO list

Staying true to its mission of introducing international students to the culture, history, cuisine and landmarks of Hungary, the Stipendium Hungaricum Mentor Network has launched an educational video series covering nearly all aspects of the nation.

The episodes airing weekly on the network’s YouTube channel are the base material for an ongoing online quiz available on with valuable and fun prizes to win at the end. The playlist now consisting of 17 episodes is expected to grow to a sizable 40 episodes covering Hungary with a voice-over from Dávid Kiss, the tourism coordinator of the network and breath-taking images showing the country’s charm and beauty.

In the next episode of the video series, you can learn about UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Hungary especially focusing on cultural sites. Heritage sites are nominated and accepted in three kinds of categories on the world-famous list: cultural sites, natural heritage sites, or a combination of both. Throughout the video, you can learn about four Hungarian cultural sites enlisted on the UNESCO list: the capital of Budapest, the old village of Hollókő, the Millenary Benedictine Abbey of Pannonhalma, and the Early Christian Necropolis of Pécs. To find out, check out the video below and stay tuned for the next episode!
