Budapest is the best gym for this street workout athlete
Posted by Mia Balogh · Feb 15, 2016

Hungarian street workout athlete, Ákos Szarka exercises in the most beautiful spots of our capital. These pictures are really worth taking a look at!

If you think that the most beautiful spots of Budapest couldn’t be more breathtaking just take a look at these photos presenting a street workout athlete, Ákos Szarka exercising in the nicest and most surprising spots of Budapest, for example on the Liberty Bridge.

Last summer, it took a day for the athlete and a photographer, Simon Móricz-Sabján to take photos in different parts of the Hungarian capital: in the Castle District, at Kossuth Square, in the streets and on corridors of old rental houses.

They aimed to show the world how Ákos is exercising but they achieved much more than that: a photo showing Ákos making a pose called “flag” on Liberty Bridge came in third at the annual Hungarian Press Photo Competition, and the photos presenting Ákos exercising are helping to increase popularity of Budapest.
