Hungary: our landlocked country full of water

Discover Hungary, our landlocked country full of water, through the eyes of National Geographic Photographer, Stephen Alvarez.

“Water runs through life in Hungary like no other place I have seen. In Budapest, the Danube River is an artery of the city, crossed by bridges and carrying barges and boats.”

“If water is life in Hungary, then wine is blood, and the Tokaj region has been renowned for its sweet golden-colored Tokaji Aszú wine for centuries.”

“On peaceful mornings when the sun rises over the lake, the warm water and cool air blend into gently swirling mist, making it easy to drift back in time and see why people have been coming here for so long.”
