Road trip

What to do in Keszthely and Hévíz?

Hévíz, Keszthely, Gyenesdiás and Vonyarcvashegy sit cosily side by side in the northwestern corner of the Balaton. We explored the area in search of things to do around here.

Káli-Kapocs - A Stylish Ruin Pub in the Káli-medence

A ruin pub in the most romantic region of Lake Balaton might sound somewhat bizarre - at least until you take a seat on the terrace of Káli-Kapocs, which will prove that the place and the surroundings were made for each other.

Festivals around

Eat some fish, the perfect dish!

It is a well-known fact that a diet rich in fish is super healthy, thanks mainly to omega-3 fatty acids. The aim of the Balaton H.E.K.K. and Health Festival is to educate visitors about Balaton fish and the nutritious dishes you can make from them.

Outdoor cinemas on the southern shore

After our northern shore roundup, we made our way to the southern side to check out the outdoor cinemas there: the giant, the free, the modernized dog friendly and the cosy.

Sandy beaches on the southern shore

We visited four towns on the southern shore to survey how bringing sand to Balaton beaches is going. We were a bit surprised by what we saw at the Fonyód beach, which was reopened last week.
