European Quartet One Melody

 
With a length of 77km and a surface area of 600km2, the Balaton is Europe’s largest natural lake. During the summer months the water temperature rises to a pleasant 20-26 °C, making it one of the country’s most valuable natural assets and by far the most popular holiday destination. It offers excellent opportunities for lovers of aquatic sports, hikers and all those simply wishing to relax.

From early spring through autumn sightseeing boats ply the waters of the lake, and there are a number of marinas where sailing boats can be rented. However the use of motorboats is strictly forbidden on Lake Balaton. All summer long visitors can pick and choose from a wide spectrum of colourful festivals and cultural events.
