Enjoy BKK 'Cool Spots' in Heat Wave
Budapest’s public transport company BKK has set up 34 'water wells' across the city to provide drinking water for people in the street given the current heat wave, the company told MTI.

BKK, in cooperation with local governments, has also established areas to cool off outfitted with solar-powered fans and shade plants on Baross and Boráros squares, BKK said.

Look out for them all around the city to help you cool off in Hungary's hotest month on record!
