The Hungarian Wikipedia celebrates its 20th birthday


The Hungarian Wikipedia was (re)launched two years after the English-language version, on 8 July 2003. To celebrate its twentieth anniversary, a successful meetup was held in Budapest on 8 July. Since its creation in 2003, more than half a million articles have been written by its contributors, making it the largest Hungarian-language encyclopedic work. Its readers regularly visit it from around ten million devices and view one hundred million articles a month. About 5,000 occasional or regular editors are involved in expanding and improving the Hungarian edition each month.

After a multi-year break from COVID, the celebrations continued at the Hungarian WikiCamp in Debrecen, which was held at the end of July and traditionally has an international participation: to the great delight of the organizers, the Hungarian participants were able to welcome participants from the Serbian and Slovak communities.
