Dream-Like Photographs Capture Budapest Inundated In Smog

Ferenc Sullivan 2015.11.11.

These beautiful pictures, taken by szeretlekmagyarorszag.hu photographer Veronika Mag, show the Hungarian capital in an unusual light, covered in thick air pollution over a brief smog alert this weekend.

The smog alert, announced by Budapest mayor István Tarlós on Sunday and saw the most polluting motor vehicles temporarily banned from traffic in order to improve the quality of air, was lifted at dawn on Monday.

Smog alerts are ordered in Budapest if particulate measure increases threshold levels on average at three observation points across the capital for two consequent days and no improvement can be expected over the upcoming day.
