The Hungarian pavilion at the 2020 World Exposition in Dubai has attracted 800,000 visitors since the fair opened in October, the Hungarian Tourism Agency (MTÜ) said on Monday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

The daily number of visitors to the pavilion has "risen significantly" to 7,000-8,000 as the expo moves closer to its end date on March 31, the agency said.

The pavilion, dubbed Aqua Roots of Hungary, showcases water, a resource in which Hungary is rich. It is the largest wooden structure in the entire Persian Gulf region.

Expo 2020 Dubai was postponed for a year because of the pandemic.
