A sleepy port town
Situated on the edge of the Danube River, the port town of Mohacs is situated in central Hungary and has served the hemp, silk and wood fibre trades for hundreds of years. The river has played a vital part in the success of this small town, centuries have passed, and still uses the river to its benefit today.
A celebration that takes place yearly during the last six days of February, Busójárás Festival is an annual celebration, in which the locals dress up in wooden masks to scare off winter and welcome spring to the town. A tradition that has been honoured since the end of the Battle of Mohacs in 1526 and one that has now been recognised by UNESCO as a festival of significant importance, visitors during the early months of the year will get to witness a tradition that only a lucky handful get to see.
Hungarian history in abundance
Mohacs has been home to battles a many, with the Battle of Mohacs taking place over 500 years ago. The battle saw the Ottoman invaders defeat the Mohacs, now known as one of the biggest tragedies in Hungarian history. The country is still scarred by the political and structural consequences the bloody battle had on the town.
