Hungarian embroidery is a true art form. Although the Hungarian embroideries date back only to the 15th century, there's evidence that embroidery has been a part of Hungarian culture much earlier. It is known worldwide.
The main patterns are floral. And bright colors are typical for Hungarian embroidery. The technique is not a cross-stitch – most common technique for modern Slavic embroideries – but every thread is lined up touching the next thread. So, the reverse side of the piece is just as smooth and flawless as the front side.

Here are several samples of Hungarian embroidery designs:
