Thanks to the detective work of people who don’t live in Budapest or even Hungary, the mystery of the white paper butterflies has been solved!
The butterflies are part of an outdoor art installation called Butterfly House by Edinas paper installations. This is just one of the “other events” or “special treats” offered by the Budapest Spring Festival, running from March 21-April 6.
Thanks to all of you who contacted me about the mystery. Have you considered an investigative career?
