Reminder: New Year’s Eve Can Be Fun! – Hungary’s Celebrations Before Covid

Hungary Today 2021.01.01.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, for the most of us, 2020 probably turned out completely differently than we had imagined at the end of last year. This time, similarly to many other countries, there were no big parties in Hungary; instead of the buzz of the celebrating crowd and the crackling of fireworks, the deserted streets were shrouded in silence. To forget for a moment about this year’s less awesome New Year’s Eve, we gathered photos of what this night looked like in previous years in Hungary, hoping that next time we will all be able to say goodbye to 2021 in a similar fashion again.
