InsightHungary is an English-language newsletter service covering current events in Hungary. Our goal is to do more than simply report the news: We want to help readers understand what’s actually happening on the ground. We cut straight to the point by avoiding the clutter of extraneous details, and concentrate on events that truly matter. Our readers spend a few minutes with us each week and walk away knowing they have firm grip on the events shaping Hungary, its role in the EU, and its place in the greater transatlantic community.

444.hu is backed by journalists with decades of experience navigating and reporting on Hungarian public affairs. Our work has earned us numerous awards for quality reporting and investigative journalism. Now, we want to bring that same expertise to an English-language audience.
Hungary has become a country where a once pluralistic media environment has being squeezed out of public life. In recent years, a number of quality outlets have closed their doors or radically changed the tone of their coverage. This is true for the English-language press in Hungary as well, especially with the closure of Budapest Beacon soon after the 2018 national election. We firmly believe there is a genuine need for independent, fact-based coverage of Hungarian affairs for the outside world by journalists on the ground. By subscribing to InsightHungary, you aren’t only paying for important news, you are supporting independent journalism in Hungary.
