HUNGARICANA is online!

HUNGARICANA is a common website of Hungarian archives, museums and libraries, operated by the Library of the Parliament, Hungary (Országgyűlési Könyvtár). The digitization was financed by the NKA (National Cultural Fund of Hungary) in recent years. The main goal is to publish the cultural heritage of Hungary on one site: databases, records, documents, images, maps, etc. Now more than 100 institutes serve data, some of them from foreign countries. The main databases (see details in databases menu):

  • Library: publication of archives, museums, libraries
  • Postcards: more than 300.000 postcards
  • MAPIRE: Historical Maps of Habsburg Empire
  • Maps: unique historical maps from biggest Hungarian collections
  • Documents: medieval charters, notarial records, criminal cases, civil law cases, etc.
  • Old Hungarian Library (RMK)
The most important feature is the common searching of databases, so the user can find data from the different sources.
