Lake Balaton - also called the Hungarian sea by many - is the number one tourist destination for Hungarians. Not by chance, as the largest lake in Central Europe is beautiful all year round.

The beach awaits you in the summer, the peace and quiet in the winter, while the forests bloom in the spring, and the must bubbles in the wine cellars and the deer rut in the autumn. And in the midst of all this miracle is the Balaton, a constant attraction for people since Roman times. The extinct volcanoes on the northern shore from Badacsony to Somló, the hidden-away palaces of the southern shore in Somogy county, the birdlife of the Kis-Balaton area or the meeting of the forests along the river Mura with the currents of Mediterranean air from the south are all unique and irreproducible parts of this wonderful landscape, which comfortably brings together young audiences at music festivals, families with young children paddling in the lake, sailors and round-lake cyclists, and groups of friends visiting wineries. The Balaton Wine Region is a treasure we all have in common, as it welcomes and belongs to everyone.
