The Soviets imposed Communism in Hungary when the Second World War ended. Hungary was the first state to leave Communism and successfully instituted multiparty democracy in 1990. Today, it is a member of the European Union. Hungary was 90% Protestant in 1600, but Christians were persecuted under Communism. Freedom of religion arrived in Hungary in 1990 as Communism came to an end.
