Sensational images of an abandoned fishing village outside of Budapest

We love a good photo series that explores abandoned places, and Viktor Egyed just so happens to be the guy we’ve got our eye on right now. Well, his photography work is, anyway.

Slovakian-based photographer Egyed accidentally found the town of Szödliget a few years ago, then came back with his camera to capture the abandoned village, which is located three hours outside of Budapest.

‘This small abandoned fishing lake has its own very unique atmosphere’, Egyed told Colossal. ‘It is an idyllic place for people who want to escape from the rushing of life for a little while’.

The images Egyed capture are so dreamy and the reflections caught in the water are fantastic. If only Szödliget wasn’t so far away!

    Spooky and atmospheric pics – quite Tarkovskian. But please note it is only 3 hours from Budapest if you walk! It must be about 30 minutes by car or a bit more by other means. 3 hours by car from Budapest at a decent pace and you could be in any of about 10 countries!

    Szödliget is 30mins out of Budapest. If you go 3h in any direction form Budapest you already left the country :DDD
