    Hungarian cities are sculptural vestiges of the East-Central European urbanization processes from the past. The aim of the course is to introduce the students to the specific emergence and development of the Hungarian settlement portfolio. The topic will be presented through the different historical periods of urban growth. Each era will be outlined through the historical, economic and social background, the settlement establishment and development factors, such as town-forming role of nationalities, religions, social stratification and Soviet influence on town planning. We will demonstrate the specific environment-forming activities and the typical Hungarian characteristics of morphology, townscape and floor plan.

    Topics: Geographical features of Hungary, Urban history of Budapest, Balaton, Blocks of flats in Budapest, State-socialism, After the 1990s, Spatial patterns of urban tourism in Budapest, Collective house
