If we would have to choose the most romantic city around Lake Balaton, it would be Tihany. A large part of its appeal is its amazing position located on the Tihany Peninsula with natural lush surroundings. The landscape was formed by volcanic forces millions of years ago and their traces can be seen today: Ancient calderas are home to the two lakes on the peninsula, while hundreds of geysers remind visitors of old times. But it's not all about geology here - the peninsula is home to innumerable rare species of plants and animals as well - so put on your boots and head out into nature to spot them. The town itself is great for a romantic stroll as well. Head uphill to the Benedictine Abbey (founded in 1055 by Andrew I. who is buried in the crypt) and take a moment to enjoy the amazing view onto the lake. The church itself was rebuilt in Baroque style in 1754 and functions until today. How about enjoying a classical concert here? You might also wonder why this town smells like lavender. Well, Tihany is surrounded by lavender fields glowing in all shades of purple, and there are heaps of shops offering all kinds of great -smelling objects to take home with you.
Nothing's more romantic than heading out onto the glittering lake on a boat, holding hands with your love and enjoying the soft wind on your skin. Rent a sailboat and slide quietly on the water, or just take the ferry and feed the friendly seagulls flying along.
Lake Balaton - Western Hungary
The "Hungarian Sea", is the people's name for the 50-mile long lake with silky green-yellow water in the middle of Transdanubia. Lake Balaton is one of Hungary's most precious treasures and most frequented resorts. It is also the largest fresh water lake in Central Europe. The southern shores are ideal for small children because of the shallow water, however, on the north shore the water gets deeper instantaneously. The summer water temperature is around 80 °F, (25 C°) which is warmer than the average air temperature in the morning and in the evening. The water and the sleek mud of the lake are excellent remedies for nervous complaints, anaemia and nervous fatigue. Picturesque vineyards in the region produce an assortment of excellent wines that go very well with the delicious local food. Large numbers of inns and restaurants welcome guests from home and abroad.
In summer the major towns (Keszthely, Balatonfüred, Siófok, Zamárdi, Balatonboglár, Fonyód) around the lake come alive with colourful programs including a buzzing nightlife. Should you get bored by lying in the sun or soaking in the silky water you surely will find a concert, a cooking festival or a sport event that will jazz you up.
The Mediterranean-like climate, combined with the soil (containing volcanic rock), has made the region notable for its production of wines since the Roman period two thousand years ago. Badacsony is a volcanic mountain and wine-growing region as well as a lakeside resort.
The lake is almost completely surrounded by separated bike lanes to facilitate bicycle tourism. Although the peak season at the lake is the summer, Balaton is also frequented during the winter, when visitors go ice-fishing or even skate, sledge, or ice-sail on the lake if it freezes over. Balaton International Airport provides air service to the lake region.
