Watch thousands of people walk over Balaton

Ki csúszott át a Balatonon? 

Frigid temperatures in early January froze over a giant portion of Lake Balaton – the largest lake in central Europe. Instead of staying inside, locals braved the cold and ventured out onto the ice. And it wasn’t just a few — people flocked to the frozen lake by the thousands. Here’s some epic footage of the event.

Lake Balaton is the largest lake in Hungary. In late January 2017, its surface froze over. How did the locals celebrate? By strolling across the body of water nicknamed “The Hungarian Sea”. Between 8,000 to 10,000 Hungarians made the 3.2-mile icy trek from Badacsony to Fonyód on ice skates on sledges or their own two feet. Authorities only reported one injury (a broken leg). We just hope they’re already friends – it would be a bad place to break the ice.
