Lake Balaton has two sides just like the coin … in style of venue. The Northern side of the lake is a more quiet, comfy, relaxing, filling up individuals energy.  The Southern side of the lake is more of a hustle-and-bustle of life, full of life characterized by being razzmatazz.

But now on tour at the Northern side of the Lake Balaton in visiting Balatonfüred. First stop payed a visit and received high welcoming at the Bistro garden – Vino Terazza. A real Italian foody and moody restaurant. Upon the visit had the real experience to dive into the pampering hospitality and with their own imaginative delicacies.

Within the half day program was organized for the participants to see more of the region by rolling around on the Segway. Thereafter, was taken on a walking tour around the Balatonfüred. We also visited venue of the annual Anna Ball site. Each year one of the participants of the Ball is elected to be the queen, crowned as Miss Balaton.

Within the tour headed to the port and strolled along the well-known inhabitants once lived at this area. Beside watching the world go by on the port and cultural sites, Balatonfüred is worth the time to visit the gastronomic delights. Its elegance and style is unbeatable, it preserves the traditions of the past, but it is one of the most dynamically developing cities in the Balaton part is Balatonfüred, which will never let the visitors to be bored and dazzle the most demanding guests. At Balatonfüred right from the first minute can feel the visitors arrived to the right place to spend their holiday and relaxation.  The region goes back to a long tradition. It was already inhabited in Roman times, thanks to its beneficial Mediterranean climate and its carbonated springs it has long been a renowned spa town. In 1926, the renowned Nobel Prize-winning poet Rabindranath Tagore was reappeared in the renowned Heart Hospital of Balatonfüred, where he was planting wood on the picturesque promenade of the city, which still preserves his name. The memories of the past can be seen in a beautiful state: the magnificent XVIII. and XIX. century buildings define the city’s mood. Due to Sándor Kisfaludy, Balatonfüred can tell the first stone theater of Transdanubia, which opened in 1831. In the last century, the city has served as a relaxing place for many renowned artists and celebrities. Blaha Lujza Villa is today an elegant restaurant and hotel, the Vaszary Villa is a prestigious gallery, as well as a café and a private cinema.

In the early afternoon participating on the EXTREM BALATON sailboat from the harbor out to the smooth water with comfy breeze and the peaceful silence just blew our mind away. From the waterfront also could admire the site of the Tihany panorama … The jewel of the North Port.  Also the sight of sailboats in the harbor was awesome.

Before leaving Balatonfüred had a peak at the Koczor Winery. Have to go back there one day to gain experiences.

Balatonfüred with its sights-and-sounds … surroundings boast from spring to autumn with colorful programs  is always something for folks to visit.  The coastal part of the city center, right next to the Tagore Promenade and the port, as well as the reform era neighborhood, the waterfront provides services for all needs for active recreation and vacation travelers and sailing enthusiasts.
