Lake Balaton

Balaton RegionsBalaton offers vacationers an excellent mix of recreation, sports and cultural events. Every holidaymaker can organize a recreation within his means: whether it will be a family vacation, romantic trip or a group vacation with friends - because anyone can find a suitable entertainment at almost 200-kilometer coastline, staying in a luxury hotel or in a simple summer cottage. Lake Balaton is the biggest freshwater lake in Europe. Blooming fruit and almond trees turn landscape into a dreamland in spring, in summer lake invites tourists for swimming and water sports, in autumn every tourist can participate in numerous wine festivals in the area around Lake Balaton and try different dishes of fine Hungarian cuisine.

Numerous chaise lounges dispose to swim a lot. Everywhere near the lake jet ski can be rented and you always can just spend a pleasant evening in the café on the beach. Those, who want to have special holidays, should definitely visit Lake Heviz on the west coast of Lake Balaton, just a few kilometers from Kastely. Lake Heviz is the largest thermal lake in Europe and the second largest in the world. This lake is 36 meters deep and is fed by the underground hot spring, which warms it up even in winter up to 25 degrees. Thermal lake is perfect for treating various diseases.

Since the southern coast comparing to the northern one is very low, it is possible to go far from the beach. And that makes Balaton a very interesting place for family holidays with children. And those, who get tired from swimming, can rent a bike (or a horse) and enjoy savage scenery. It is really easy to do by bike, because there is a special cycle track which goes around the lake.

Every year at Balaton a special event takes place, which attracts many spectators and participants – lake crossing. Those, who can swim over 5 kilometers, just cannot miss such an event! A big feast is takes place afterwards – with music, dancing, good food and Hungarian wine.
