Insight to the history. About two thousand years ago, the western part of the modern Hungary belonged to the Roman Empire and was called "the province of Pannonia." A capital of Pannonia was located on the territory of nowadays Budapest Aquincum (from the Latin "aqua" - "water"). On the territory of Aquincum archaeologists found 21 ancient bathhouses.

The Romans brought high culture there. There are many monuments of history in these places - Roman ruins, magnificent palaces, mighty fortress, medieval cities. They often serve as fantastic scenery for historical events, performances and concerts of classical music.

n the ancient epochs Slavic languages were closely connected to Iranian languages (on the Black Sea coast and in the southern Russian steppes), later they interacted with German and Ancient Greek. These connections have left their trace in some layers of the Slavic language. Among non-Indo-European languages  particularly significant were connections with the Finno-Ugric and Turkic languages, mainly reflected also in the vocabulary of the Slavic languages.

In its turn, the Slavic languages also influenced the languages of the peoples who have some ties and relationships with them. In the early middle Ages, Slavic languages were spread in Hungary, Romania and Greece (up to the Peloponnese). Information about them we get due to the toponymy of these countries and the oldest Slavic borrowings in Romanian, Hungarian and Modern Greek languages. Slavic borrowings, for example, in the Hungarian language are related to many aspects of social life, material and spiritual culture.
