The pavilion of the Republic of Hungary is designed to be a pleasant experience for young and old alike. It recounts moments in the country's history and the sustainable management of water resources by the Hungarian people. It also reveals the exclusive secrets of the Carpathian Basin. The touch screens allow visitors to go beyond the images and obtain scientifically based information. Given the characteristics of this space, families with children will have an unforgettable time. The Hungarians have prepared a practical guide booklet for three age groups, an illustrated guide that summarises the message of the exhibition in a friendly way. The visitor will come away with a clear and comprehensive view of Hungary, a country whose language is spoken nowhere else, whose folklore is unique and whose capital city. Budapest is a World Heritage Site. The pavilion shows the regulation of water in flood areas and displays a Renaissance hydraulic device from Esztergom, the history of thermal baths (Hungary has the world's largest reserve of surface thermal water after Iceland) and the country today.
