The Kis-Balaton (Little Ballaton) is located southwest of the popular tourist region- Hungarian Balaton. "Silent land behind the Lake" – this can be said about the Kis-Balaton region. It is a paradise for leisure seekers and nature lovers. Kis-Balaton once was a part of Lake Balaton. In the consequence of artificial intervention as well as waterlogging the water level became lower. It led to the separation of Kis-Balaton from Lake Balaton. Today its size is over 22 km in length and about 4 km width.
