Hungary Today’s new, recurring series ‘Summer in Hungary’ takes a look at some of the best places to enjoy the summer weather and spend your holidays. We will collect some of the most beautiful and fun Instagram pictures from a relaxing weekend at the beaches of Lake Balaton and Velence, the Balaton Cross Swimming and the Kékszalag Regatta, to rooftop bars, confectioneries, and wild parties at the best Hungarian music festivals.
This week, we are traveling to Balatonfenyves, located on the southern shore of Lake Balaton which is a famed holiday resort of the region. The small village, counting only around 2000 residents, is an ideal place for those looking for a peaceful and quiet place to escape the troubles of everyday life and to relax. With its huge and comfortable beaches and rest areas, it attracts guests from all over the country. Animal lovers, and those looking for more active forms of recreation, can visit the famed Nagyberek bird reserve by bicycle, or take Nordic walking and canoe tours.
