Hungary - September 24th, 2009

The waters of Hungary’s Lake Balaton, the largest lake in Central Europe, appear bright green due to silty sediments and algae. Here, the water along the western shores of the lake appears slightly lighter in color than that of the rest of the lake.

Several rivers and streams can also be seen flowing across the landscape, including the Mura River, a tributary of the Drava and subsequently the Danube. The Mura’s total length is 465 km, of which 295 km is in Austria, 98 km is in Slovenia and the rest forms the border between Croatia and Hungary.

Here, the river flows across the image from the center left,  appearing as a dark green line that forms the border between Hungary (above) and Croatia (below).

Lake Balaton, in western Hungary, is the largest lake in Central Europe. Its name originates from Slavic, meaning approximately “muddy lake”. In fact, most of its bottom is made up of silty sand.

To the West of Lake Balaton, in Austria, two rivers form branchlike patterns in the green landscape: the Mura (left) and the Rába (right). Both rivers are tributaries of the Danube.

The Mura’s total length is 465 km, of which 295 km is in Austria, 98 km is in Slovenia and the rest forms the border between Croatia and Hungary. The Rába, on the other hand, is in southeastern Austria and western Hungary.
