Hungary Today 2021.11.18.

For safe water levels and flood protection, the water level of Lake Tisza was lowered by 1 cm. The Hortobágy National Park posted on its social media page that the large fields of flowers of the summer have disappeared and other birds are also staying there.

However, the posted photos show that during this period sponge animals, shells, as well as wooden blocks appear, which cannot be seen in the summer.

Lake Tisza (until 1988 Kisköre Reservoir) is the largest artificial lake in Hungary; in summer it attracts many tourists.
