It is also fairly interesting that comparatively, Bulgarians end up as being closest to Hungarians, with a negative Fst value. Perhaps this represents some commonality of an Asian element added to a Balcano-Danubian population. Non-significant differences (above 5% level) were also observed in comparison to Romanians, Slovenians, Ukrainians, and surprisingly Norwegians, perhaps due to the fairly unusual high R1a/R1b mix in both populations.

Hungarian population data for 11 Y-STR and 49 Y-SNP markers.
Völgyi A, Zalán A, Szvetnik E, Pamjav H.
49 Y-chromosomal single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) with TaqMan assay and 11 Y-chromosomal STR loci were tested in 215 independent Hungarian male samples. Genetic distances to 23 other populations were calculated based on haplogroup frequencies with AMOVA implemented in Arlequin2.0. Based on distances phylogenetic tree was constructed with Neighbor-joining method using Phylip 3.66. Haplotype and haplogroup diversity values were calculated.
