Background Information

Governing Law: Official public holidays in Hungary are regulated by the Act VIII of 1991 on the State Festival of the Republic of Hungary (Magyar Közlöny, 1991-03-14, No 29, pp. 651-652) which sets forth the list of public holidays, from which the dates of March 15, August 20 and October 23 are singled-out as National Holidays, August 20 being made the official national day of Hungary. The law further cancels the public holidays of April 4 and November 7, due to their association with Soviet occupation.  Revolution Day: March 15, marking the outbreak of the 1848/9 revolution and war of independence, from which modern parliamentarianism in Hungary can be dated.  St. Stephen's Day: August 20, the feast of St Stephen of Hungary, founder of the state, declared by Parliament, in 1991, to be the official State National Day.  Republic Day: October 23, anniversary of the outbreak of the 1956 revolution and proclamation of the Republic of Hungary in 1989.  Bridge Public Holidays were introduced in 2007 as per law law 170/2006 (Chapter VII, section 28), to occur on Mondays preceding Tuesday holidays, and to occur on Fridays following Thursday holidays. In order to make up for these extra public holidays, specific Saturdays have been designated as Working Saturdays. The law also makes special provisions for the case of December 24.  Hungary International Codes HU and HUN (2 and 3-letter ISO3166 codes) and .hu (ICANN national top-level internet domain). • Other Sources of Information The following specialized websites are also a good source of Hungary information and news: Magyar Nemzeti Bank (Hungary central bank), UnitedHealthcare Global (security-related world events: terrorist threats, political strife, strikes, criminal activity, aviation incidents and health outbreaks), CIA World Factbook (Hungary maps, demographics and economic statistics), the IFES (information covering upcoming elections, referenda, electoral structures and voter participation in Hungary), and Wikipedia (includes Hungary commemorative dates that are not necessarily public holidays).
