“We don’t know for sure when kites .rst appeared in Hungary,” says Istvan Bodoczky. “The word for kite in Hungarian is sarkany (dragon), which is probably a translation of the German drachen,
for there is no evidence that the medieval European kite, the dragon-shaped Dracone, was used in Hungary. The first mention of kites in print in Hungary as a ‘light construction flyying up in the wind’ appeared in the periodical Magyar Kurir in 1799.
