22 December 2016

See a different side to Lake Balaton — a popular Hungarian summer holiday destination — with this drone video by photographer Norbert Varga.

The video captures the enchanting and somewhat mystical winter character of Lake Balaton, now partly covered with a thin layer of ice.

The largest lake in central Europe, Lake Balaton is often called the Hungarian sea. To see the lake in a less icy state, take a look at Polish photographer Michael Solarski’s summer photo story.
