Balaton region

Balaton is the greatest freshwater lake in Central Europe. It has a very special place in every Hungarian heart, we often refer to it kindly as “The Hungarian Sea”

Come to visit us and you can get a taste of the authentic Balaton feeling!

Balatonfüred is the oldest and most famous holiday resort by the lake. Owing to the versatility of its cultural events and its Mediterranean atmosphere it is very popular both among Hungarians and tourists from abroad.

Tihany, situated in a peninsula, is the town with the most special location and awe-inspiring view not only by Lake Balaton, but maybe in whole Hungary. Besides its natural characteristics, its architecture, monuments, museums and an array of events keep the visitor engaged.

Hungary is the prime thermal water source in whole Europe. At the moment there are about 500 thermal water sites in the country. This means that natural water warmer than +30°C can be found in 70% of Hungary. Spa culture has its old traditions in the country, it dates back as early as the Turkish occupation (16th – 17th centuries). These spas are just the perfect places for relaxation!

The cycle route bypassing the whole Lake Balaton offers a perfect opportunity for those seeking active recreation. You can hit the road for smaller distances as well, either way you will come across fabulous landscapes.

Our capital, Budapest, bisected by the Danube, is getting more and more popular among all European capitals. The visitor immediately falls in love with its vibrant and versatile cultural life, the river shore, the monumental bridges, and the picturesque Buda castle.

Hungarian wine culture is well-known and appreciated all around the world. Pamper yourself and participate in a special wine-tasting event. Surprise your nearest and dearest when you return home, buy them a bottle of good-quality Hungarian wine! It is pretty much a perfect gift.

With its charming cobblestone street winding in the castle area, Veszprém offers a pleasant sightseeing day for the visitor. Although Veszprém is a county seat, it still features a special small-town charm, straightaway discovered by tourists as well.

This is where to this very day, the worldwide famous Porcelain Manufactury produces – with the utmost precision – the vases, cups, dinner sets and other objects so much beloved by the society’s elite. Rulers and leading politicians often buy souvenirs from here and put them in a prominent place in their home or office.  Hungary’s wedding gift for Prince William was also produced in Herend – a beautiful porcelain dinner set.

Let us introduce you the Hungarian “puszta” (very rough translation: prairie)!
A truly countryside experience! Horses, Hungarian dishes, beverages and most importantly: Hungarian hospitality!

Hungarian cuisine today shows great regional variety – and this promises a lot of excitement for gastro-curious travellers.

Flavours of Hungarian dishes are based on centuries old traditions in spicing and preparation methods. The exquisite ingredients are produced by local agriculture and husbandry.

   Several special ingredients are account for the distinctive flavour of Hungarian meals:
  • Hungarian paprika
  • lard
  • onion and garlic
  • sour cream
  • cottage cheese, walnut and poppy seed in sweet courses
   There are also a few unique Hungarian cooking methods that we use to prepare our dishes.

The southern part of the Great Plain produces some of the finest veggies in  the countryincluding  the hot paprika (red chilli peppers) from Szeged, the onions from Makó, the green peppers from Szentes and the garlic from Bátyai. Two of the most popular Hungarian sausagesare made in the area as well, the sausage from Gyula and from Csaba, as well as the Pick salami are usually part of any souvenir pack. And the peach pálinka from Kecskemét is one of the best in the country.

The area has given birth to the Hortobágyi pancake as well, a savoury crêpe filled with veal, today usually served as a starter.

The mixing of different varieties of meats is a traditional feature of Hungarian cuisine.

The area around Balaton has countless delicacies to offer as well, we’d advise you to try the fish dishes

Hungarians are real soup-lovers, no doubt about that. A fine chicken soup is part of any proper Sunday lunch and comes in lots of varieties.

Don’t compare the Hungarian goulash to other kinds of goulash you might have eaten elsewhere, by the way – the original one is a rich and spicy soup, best made out of the meat of the Hungarian Grey cattle.

Hungarians are quite sweet-toothed, so there is no lack in sugary delicacies either. The somlói galuska (sponge cake spilled with rich chocolate sauce and topped with light whipped cream) is a dessert offered at every proper Hungarian restaurant. The Dobos cake is a truly special Hungarian invention,a sponge cake layered with soft chocolate butter cream topped with a thin slice of caramel cracking in your mouth.
