Hungarian is estimated to have fewer than 15 million native speakers and is spoken primarily in the country of Hungary. Interestingly, Hungarian is not a part of the Indo-European language family and is in fact a Uralic language, which makes it a relative of Estonian and Finnish. Like Turkish, it is an agglutinative language, but Hungarian can claim to have a great many number of cases (18) and no gender. While not necessarily a popular language to learn, it would nonetheless be pretty rewarding to study a European language so different from the rest. If anything, learn some Hungarian for your trip to Budapest.
