On a Journey to Mohács (Hungary) this video about the intangible cultural heritage of the Busójárás, the the annual carnival, was created. The Busójárás is well known as the biggest carnival event in Hungary. Whereby a special emphasis is placed on the masquerade with intricately carved wooden masks.
