Diving through the abyss of Budapests’ hidden caves

For Laora Tuominen, the ultimate diving experience is not found off the Mediterranean coast or in a Caribbean lagoon, but hidden underneath the depths of the noisy city of Budapest.

The never ending twists and turns of the city’s intestines have attracted thrill-seekers since the opening of an underground diving centre in 2015.
