  • Balaton is the largest lake in Eastern Europe. It is surrounded by dozens of small villages and towns (and a few larger ones), attractions and activites for all ages and tastes. We stayed in Tihany...

  • 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.
