Let's push a big deeper into Central Europe after Austria (http://www.eupedia.com/forum/showthread.php?t=27149) and Poland (http://www.eupedia.com/forum/showthread.php?t=26292). Hungary is a country with the same population as Belgium, bigger if you include Hungarians living in surrounding countries, so I expect to find enough contributions to the world to start a poll. However it is probably one of the EU countries I know the least about. Your help will be appreciated.

Here is what I found :

- classical music (Liszt, Bartok...)
- the ballpoint pen
- the Rubik's Cube (+ similar puzzles)
- holography

You can't vote for individuals as contributions to the world. If there are enough individuals in one field (e.g. medicine), the that field can be listed, but not an isolated person. That is the rule I have been using for all the polls about the greatest contributions by country.
