A measure of the Hungarian success in contributing to the intellectual heritage of the world is the fact that Hungary has 13 Nobel Prize winners so far, while there were other famous Hungarians who invented such everyday objects like the ball-point pen, the phosphor matches, the electric train and the telephone exchange as such.

We should also mention a long list of famous Hungarian composers, painters and artists among them Zoltán Kodály, Béla Bartók and Victor Vasarely – just to name a few.
