Hungary is a land locked country bordered by Austria, Slovakia, Ukraine, Romania, Serbia, Croatia, and Slovenia. Its capital is Budapest, which boasts one of the world's most beautiful capital cities, Budapest, the "Pearl of the Danube", which is on UNESCO's World Heritage list.

Diving information is sparse. It's a land locked country, so lake diving is the only option, such as in Lake Balaton, where in winter ice diving takes place. There is also cave diving in some lakes.

If you know something that we don't, please contact us, and we'll add it to the site.

Getting there

The Molnar Janos Cave

In Budapest, there is an underground thermal lake, in all 5 km (3,1 miles). Passageways of 82 m (269 feet) deep. The water is warm, 20°C in underlayer and 27°C in upper. While the lower layer is more stagnant, the warmer water flows towards the Alagút-spring.

The spring of Molnár János empties into Lake Malom, which flows after a few hundred feet/meters into the Danube. Divers have found remains of Roman activity at the bottom of Lake Malom.
