The Busó festivities in Mohács, a six-day carnival to mark the end of winter, drew tens of thousands of visitors this year, the Hungarian Tourism Agency said, according to news agency MTI.

Visitors to the festival, which took place on February 8-13 this year, spent around 1,000 guest nights at tourism accommodations there. Occupancy rates at the weekend were over 90%.

Most visitors were Hungarians, but foreign tourists, mainly from Slovakia and Germany, also came to Mohács during the carnival.

The Busó festivities, named for the busós, frightening-looking costumed people wearing wooden masks and big woolly cloaks, were inscribed on UNESCO's Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2009.
