I have identified #6 flower from your cycling in Hungary trip. It is in the same family as the touch-me-mot or jewelweed.   Impatiens glandulifera Balsaminaceae. Please pass this on to any others that were trying to rack their brains.

11. Jimpsom Weed, not sure of spelling or another nick name Jamestown Weed. It is hallucinogenic but smells very nice and blooms at night. Originally thought to be moonflower because of the night blooming until finding it in an herb book.
