Located in Central Europe, northwest of Romania, Hungary is a landlocked state bordering Austria, Croatia, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia and Ukraine. As such, it has a strategic location astride main land routes between Western Europe and Balkan Peninsula as well as between Ukraine and Mediterranean basin. Hungary has a temperate climate with cold and humid winters and warm summers. The north-south flowing Duna (Danube) and Tisza Rivers divide the country into three large regions.
