Lake Balaton (German: Plattensee Slovak: Blatenské jazero, Latin: Lacus Pelso, Croatian: Blatno jezero) is a freshwater lake in the Transdanubian region of Hungary. It is the largest lake in Central Europe, and one of the region's foremost tourist destinations. The Zala River provides the largest inflow of water to the lake, and the canalised Sió is the only outflow.
Good place for a camping ... veey touristic though. Not our style , but many like it and many more will if/when they get there. Be careful with the hungarians. Very tricky guys, do not speak any languages except Hungarian and are trying to rob every penny out of Your pocket.
How can you not appreciate the beauty of the largest fresh water lake in the world? Breathtaking scenes of natural scenery. It's a beautiful lake and spreads over a long area. This place is as mystical as the pictures show it to be. Great views of mountains and the water is as blue as the pictures show it to be. The best time to visit early morning. I can't even find words for how much I love this lake. Must visit here and enjoy the life. Your time will be well paid.
Good place for holidays.Water in lake is always warm for swimming.
Perfect place for a vacation. Everyone finds activities, from club nights, to wine tasting dinners, from swimming to hiking. There are many attractions worth visiting.
The Hungarian sea as it is called, lake Balaton is pretty special as the water levels are perfect, it is the favourite destination for all Hungarians during summer so in case you are driving there on a weekend expect delays. It is nice place to relax and enjoy your family and friends.
It is a beautiful place to stay I would recommend for all of you. Balaton is like being free. ⛵
was always a nice and popular place for holidays, sports... and gets better every year :)
Very beautiful place. I hope to see it again!
Dirty! Helicopters spray poison against mosquito's, hotels pump at night their sewage waist in the lake, do now want to know what happens more. Never again!
There is a beautiful bike path all around the Balaton. There are great places for camping, swimming, and hiking. Beautiful beaches, resorts, and villages to visit everywhere. A special place to see is Tihany!
One big lake attracting lots of tourists.
Lake Balaton is one of Hungary's most precious treasures and most frequented resorts. It is also the largest lake in Central Europe. The peak tourist season extends from June until the end of August.
The perfect place when escaping from the city life. There are a lot of things to do here: sailing, wind surfing, fishing or simply jogging by the lake side. There is also a nearby airport that offers skydiving. Prices of the apartments vary. People are friendly and hospitable. May is the best month to visit Lake Balaton for it is not crowded, hotels and apartments are cheap, and the weather is just fine.
