Due to the innovation Google introduced in mid November 2013, in spite of any preset, only a few photos are displayed at once. After clicking the link of the galleries (under the corresponding index picture), you should select the "all photos" tag at the left upper corner, instead of the "highlights" which is the default setting by Google+ unfortunately.

Budapest welcomes the opportunity to host the 32nd Congress of the International Society of Limnology from August 4th to 9th, 2013, devoted to the theme of „Diverse water - rich life". This will be the second time such an event will be organized in Hungary, in the heart of Europe. The congress will take place at the Budapest Congress Center, and Hungarian limnologists are very proud of being chosen as the next venue.

Budapest is a city of water and spas, rendered magical by the Danube River connecting the nations and people of Europe. Hilly landscapes, long history, pleasant climate, rich cultural events, and music prove that the city is indeed a pearl of the Danube. An excellent conventional centre in a peaceful environment and conference hotels are awaiting the guests.

Budapest is one of the nicest cities in Europe, easy to reach, and famous for its hospitality, fine food, tasty drinks, and many historical and cultural sites of interest.

Hungary offers a wide variety of a waters, and participants will be invited to pay a mid-congress visit to selected areas, historical, and cultural spots of unique nature.
