The Tihany Abbey is a Benedictine monastery established in Tihany in the Kingdom of Hungary in 1055. Its patrons are the Virgin Mary and Saint Aignan of Orleans.
The Benedictine monastery in Tihany was established in 1055 by King Andrew I of Hungary (r. 1046–1060). It was dedicated to the Holy Virgin and to Saint Bishop Aignan of Orleans. King Andrew was buried in the church of the monastery in 1060. His tomb in the crypt of the church is the only grave of a medieval King of Hungary which has been preserved up until now.

It is a beautiful historical building with a remarkable view on the lake. It's one of the things in Hungary which you must see at least once. Therefore it can be a lot crowded. The entry fee includes a 10 minute-long movie that tells you the basics about the abbey, and it's available with English subtitles.

One of the first Christian church from the early days of the Hungarian kingdom. It has a beautiful view over Lake Balaton from the top of the inactive volcanic crater of tihany

Lovely church and ornate interior like many others in Europe. What distinguishes this is the lovely lake views and the very interesting museum about the food, drinks and life of the monks. A small art gallery has lovely paintings. Some cute souvenirs in the small shop at the exit.
