Margaret Island – Budapest, Hungary


Margaret Island is a 2,5 km (1,6 mi) long and 500 metres (550 yards) wide island in the middle of the Danube in central Budapest. The island is mostly covered by landscape parks, and it’s a popular recreational area. I went for a walk on the island last week and visited my favourite part of it: the small Japanese garden. Unfortunately there was a flood this summer which destroyed almost the whole garden. Only the small fish pond remained with the sculpture of the sitting girl in the middle of it.

The water was dirty and there were only a few survivors: some fishes and turtles. I hope the garden will be tidied up soon.

Despite the bad conditions some water lily bloomed in the fish pond, so I took a few photos of them. I hope I can take pictures about the whole beautiful garden next year.
