They call it the Hungarian sea, and we can guarantee that even though it’s not actually a sea, spending time by the Balaton will be an experience of a lifetime. It would be extremely difficult to pick an ultimate favourite location around the lake because there are a gazillion things to do and see in the area.
The lake looks incredible in winter as well, as shown in this breath-taking drone video from the talented people at Wenitapress. Watch the mighty Balaton turn to ice in front of your eyes. How amazing is the winter in Hungary?!
