Abū Hāmid, Hungary, Arab traveler, medieval history
The article deals with three years of Arab traveler’s, Abū Hāmid al-Ġarnāţī’s, life in Hungary. This famous Arab traveler had spent three years between 1150 and 1153 living in medieval kingdom of Hungary. His most important information is on Muslims who lived in Hungary, especially around Pest and for us the most interesting data is that they had lived in Srem. He provides pieces of information on their origin, life, religious deeds, etc. Abū Hāmid is also valuable source on Hungaro-Byzantine relations and war in 1150’s. He gives very specific perceptions on life in Hungary, being an awkward, but nevertheless attention-grabbing source for economic history and everyday life in medieval Hungary.
