The hot air balloon lookout opened in Városliget is not the first such contraption in Budapest: it was already possible to rise above the city with a balloon at the millennium exhibition. However, the balloon, Turul, launched 120 years ago on 1 May 1902, was not intended to entertain the public, but to do research. In addition to meteorological observations,we can also thank it for a number of aerial photographs, which show how Budapest looked from above at the beginning of the 20th century.

From the beginning of May, we will be able to admire the capital from a hot air balloon rising to a height of more than 100 meters, as the Ballon Lookout will be put into operation on Mimóza Hill in the Városliget, which will be a rarity not only in Hungary but also in Central Europe. The balloon revives an old tradition, as a similar device was already operating in the Grove during the 1896 millennium celebrations.
