Hungarians are genetically more european than most slavic speaking people (who contain more Asian mongoloid Y and mt.DNA haplogroup markers), but all Northern Germanic nations (incl. Northern Germany too) have higher ratio of Mongolid haplogroup markers . See the ratio of Central Asian haplogroup „Q” and the other mongoloid haplogroup marker „N” (aka. N1C1) markers in the largest genetic CHART of European nations:

And see the high ratio of middle-eastern haplogroup markers (various „J” and african E1b1) in all balkan populations (inc. Romania). De facto, these nations populations genetically are less European than Hungarians.

Do not forget that vast majority of balkan population is not only genetically but anthropogically less white (average darker eye and hair color, skin tone) so-called „WOG” people. Just type in google image searcher: „eye color map” , „hair color map”.

Kurultaj is a good business for the organisers. A whole industry and commerce built upon that event.

There are a lot of fake-hungarian made-in-china souvenir there.

In the 1990s a well developed souvenir and merchandise business has grown around Turanism, traditionalist and historical reenactment groups, which is quite similar to other well known international examples of business of this kind. According to the opinion of Hungarian researcher Igaz Levente this merchandise industry grown around modern Hungarian Turanism became a kind of business, which he called "Szittya biznisz" (Scythian business), and it has not got much to do with ancient Hungarian traditions.[

The Habsburg conspiracy theory

The Habsburg conspiracy theory is very popular amongst political Turanists, which was invented only in the 1970s

According to the myth, the Habsburgs envied the glorius Turanian past and "ancestry" of the Hungarian nation, therefore Habsburgs created a plan to hide it from the Hungarian and European public opinion. In the reality, it was Emperor Francis Joseph who used his political prestige to give a university cathedra (as professor) for Ármin Vámbéry, the top leader of Hungarian turanists.

Archduke Joseph Francis Habsburg, was the first patron of the Hungarian Turan Society
