Hungarian culture and traditions go back centuries. The Hungarian viszla, a hunting dog first mentioned in the middle ages, was used by Magyar tribes. The use of Hungarian folk dress, though mostly a thing of the past, is resurrected for weddings and other special occasions. Paprika has long been an essential herb to Hungarian traditional cuisine, and goulash is one dish that features this red spice. Learn more about Hungary's culture in Hungary Culture 101 in Photos.
