No. of pictures: 39 pictures
The ruin of medieval fortress on limestone rock is perhaps on any symbol related to the town of Sümeg which is set on Balaton’s northwestern shore. Archeological findings show us that once this region was very prosperous, especially in late Bronze age. Sümeg castle is a castle that is easy to access unlike other castles in Hungary. The access road is short yet steep. Those who don’t want to go slowly can pay a small fee for a castle taxi only to be at the gates couple of minutes later. Upon reconstruction the complex is a medieval amusement park. For instance, knight tournaments are held there.

The picturesque Hungary town of Tihany lies in Vesprem county in the district of Balatonfüred, but such positioning of the Czechs or Slovaks, most will say a lot. Well just add that Tihany is located on a peninsula of Lake Balaton, as many already know exactly where to look.
The town 10 kilometers away from Balaton’s northwestern bank. It is known for its spas and thermal lake Heviz. All nature that loves warm environment and muddy bedrock found its home here and it also gives some space to the men. Wine grows here great. Egregy hill with vineyards and private vine cellars proves it.
