Hungary Population 2017

9,787,461

Like many countries in the European Union, Hungary is facing a demographics crisis with a population that is slowly contracting. Hungary has the second-worst negative growth among EU countries.

The capital and largest city of Hungary is Budapest, which is also one of the European Union's largest cities. Budapest has an estimated population of 1.74 million, down from its peak of 2.1 million in 1989, due to its growing suburbs. The larger Budapest Metropolitan Area has a population of 3.3 million people. Budapest is often called one of Europe's mostbeautiful cities and it's home to the largest thermal water cave system in the world. More than 4.4 million people visit Budapest each year, which makes it Europe's 6th most popular city.

The present-day borders of the country were established after World War I which caused Hungary to lose 71% of its area and 58% of its population, including one-third of its ethnic Hungarians.

Hungary Demographics

Hungary has been inhabited by many people over its long history, including the Celts, Romans, Slavs, Huns, Avars, and Gepids. Today, ethnic Hungarians account for the largest ethnicity at 84% of the population, followed by Romani (3%), Germans (1%), Slovaks (0.3%), Romanians (0.3%), and Croats (0.2%). Almost 15% of the population did not declare an ethnicity at the 2011 census.

Christianity is the most common religion in Hungary, although it has no official religion. Most Hungarians became Lutherans following the 16th century, then the country turned largely to Calvinism. Hungary was home to a large Jewish population at one time. While some Hungarian Jews escaped the Holocaust, up to 550,000 were deported to concentration camps or murdered in the country. Budapest remains the center of Hungary's Jewish population today.
