Truly I expected a bit differently service, beachea and water quality. Entrance is payed, places are not very clean, water is not very clean. I even saw a snake hunted a small fish that I didnt mention to my kids so they dont panic. Storage system does not function, it was even wrapped. Dead fish near swimmig shores but yeah small kids always enjoy.
One of the biggest lakes in Europe. So many little towns around the lake to visit, as well as castles and forts and hot springs and parks and just a plethora of recreational things. If you like cycling there’s a beautiful path way that encompasses the entire length but it’s not something you’d manage on one day.
