Balaton day trip

Balaton day trip

On this day trip the bus covers about 100 kms on motorway before reaching Central Europe’s largest lake. After another half an hour you reach Balatonfüred, which literally means ‘bathing (place) at Balaton’. In fact, this core areas of the town date back to the 1830’s, when rich people of the day started building villas here.

From here you’ll take a boat to Tihany, a pocket-sized town with an important place in the country’s cultural history.  The main sight here is an abbey on top of the peninsula. At the basement of the abbey you’ll get to see the first few words ever written down in Hungarian – dating all the way back to 1055.    We’ll also have lunch in Tihany.
