Policy and Cultural Heritage in Europe – the Croatian Minority in Hungary

Croats in Hungary have a long history. They are deeply rooted in the Hungarian territory. The cultural and linguistic diversity of the Croatian minority in Hungary is larger than in other countries. Each ethnic group of Croats in Hungary is distinctive. Some of them moved to parts of Hungary during the Turkish occupation of Croatian territory or during the Turkish occupation of central parts of former Hungarian territory, or after getting free from Turkish rule in the period from the fi fteenth to the eighteenth century.
