Place of Worship
“One of the oldest Abbey in Hungary with wonderful panorama to the lake. Must see.”

Museum
“Castle museum where you get that old world touch you came to experience in Hungary. Hungary boasts lots of beautiful castles and the one in Keszthely is not only one of the most famous, but also one of the most beautiful in my opinion. Tip: Check out the castle chapel.”

Natural Feature
“Hévíz is situated in southwest Hungary at the western corner of Lake Balaton. The Thermal Lake of Hévíz is the world's largest biologically active natural thermal lake. All water of the lake replaced completely every day. The depth varies from 100-150 cm close to the shore to 38 m in the centre. The water temperature is around 35 °C in summertime and never goes below 22 °C in the winter.”

Tech Startup
“75kms long, this isnt a tiny lake. FULL OF FISH, worth a full week of fishing adventures! From shore or a boat, or from piers and marinas. License required so buy it before you cast. Drive there or drive around it and taste local wine, boat, fish, swim, bike, hike... nice area, scenic drives.”

Farmers Market
“Best market in Hungary, you have to go Sunday morning, besides local products they sell food and also used stuff and offer simple eating places within the market. The coffee place next to the entrance is very much overpriced yet, but the lángos they sell inside the market is excellent.”

Premise
“Очень примечательное и красивое место. Граф Фештетич и его потомки были очень образованными и активными людьми, что нашло свое отражение в организации жизни усадьбы. Наиболее впечатляющий экспонат - грандиозная частная библиотека. Причем, в настоящее время исследователи могут пользоваться этой библиотекой по прямому назначению! Красивый парк, архитектура самого дворца, каретный сарай (который, конечно, не сарай, а мини-дворец для карет, повозок и саней), оранжерея, пруд с рыбами, птицы... Думаю, каждый увидит здесь что-то интересное для себя. Тем более, что музейный комплекс включает в себя еще два современных здания. В одном из них расположены охотничья выставка с трофеями со всего мира и впечатляющая выставка моделей железных дорог. В другом новом павильоне - выставка о том, как и на чем люди путешествовали раньше. В зависимости от типа купленного билета (можно купить билет сразу на все экспозиции или только на некоторые из них), посещение дворца может стать программой на целый день или на один - два часа.”
