The Eternally-Shining Beach Resorts Of The Balaton – Photos Of The Last Century

Lake Balaton is a resort area that has withstood the storms of centuries and the often cruel whims of history. The “Hungarian Sea” was always a place where locals and visitors alike could stop and take a deep breath of nature, “wellness”, camps and holiday fun. Nowadays, the Lake plays host to festivals as well. Whether in the 1910s or the 2010s, the Balaton has always been an important tourist destination.

Below you can find a historical photo collection about Lake Balaton. While summers have always been been sunny and hot (though perhaps not as much as this year ), the Balaton was and still is a great place to refresh yourself when warm weather rolls around.
