Lake Balaton, maybe the biggest tourist attraction in Hungary outside Budapest. This lake draws several hundred thousand tourists to Budapest every year, and now the season for swimming and enjoying Balaton is approaching again.

The southern side, known for its very low water (you can walk for several hundred meters, and still the water reaches your belly), is very popular among families with small children. The northern side has deeper water, and the people who are used to that, prefers the northern side.

We just added some pictures from Balaton for your enjoyment, though it has not so much to do with our subject, Budapest, it still belongs to Hungary, and it is absolutely a place worth visiting. If you like these pictures, you should check out the pictures from Eger and our pictures from Budapest.
