The 14th century ruins of Essegvár in Bánd are perfect if you like abandoned ruins, which are literally abandoned. So there's a good chance you'll be here only by yourself. Originally, it was built of wood around 1270, and then it was transformed into a stone building in the 14th century. A short, but steep path leads you to the castle from the village. We visited this spot on a bright summer afternoon, but there was no one else around.
Balatonfüred does not only have awesome confectioneries, but many a museum and church ruin can be found here as well. The name Papsoka refers to ties to the Tihany Abbey, because the servants of the Abbey used to live here. This Romanesque church was reconstructed a couple of times, and supposedly it was destroyed during the Turkish occupation. You can already glimpse the ruins from Vázsonyi Street, if heading in the direction of Balatonszőlős. It is definitely worth a visit for the view already, so you should get ready for climbing.
