European Quartet One Melody

Hungary’s largest man-made lake was created by damming the River Tisza in 1973 to facilitate flood prevention, with the filling of the lake finished in 1990s. Today, it is an extraordinary area of 127km². Here you can find sailboats and windsurfers skimming over the pristine waters of the lake. The beauty of the region is miraculous, a few kilometers away from the lake you will find Europe’s largest field of blossoming water lilies and fringed water lilies, the uninterrupted carpet of water chestnuts and the many willow trees bowing on the banks.
The possibilities for a great holiday at Lake Tisza are countless. Several guided tours are offered, which run all-year round. Some of the most popular tours include the Sunset/Sunrise tours, during which the guests will see beautiful sights of the sun from unusual, hidden spots. The Nature Trail and Water Walkway is another popular tour to take. It connects three islands and is 1.5km long.
