Welcome to Hungary
Hungary has no coastline nowadays, but it does have the Hungarian Sea, otherwise known as Lake Balaton. The lake has been popular since the Magyar tribes first galloped into the Carpathian Basin in 896 and shows no signs of losing its appeal. A collection of resort towns and an interesting bicycle route ring the 77 kilometre long lake. Hévíz-Balaton Airport is 20 kilometres from Keszthely at the southern end of the lake. From there, you can hire a car or take a bus and explore some of the resorts.
