Lake Balaton
Known as the "Hungarian Sea" Lake Balaton is a jewel of Transdanubia, offering 50 miles of crystal-clear green-yellow water. It's Hungary's largest lake and a beloved destination for both locals and visitors. The region around Lake Balaton boasts diverse landscapes, gentle hills, flat plains, rivers, and lakes.

Keszthely, a charming city on the western edge of Lake Balaton, is the ideal location for our festival. It offers small, shallow beaches, a vibrant yet relaxed atmosphere, and numerous museums and historical buildings to explore. Don't miss the Festetics Palace, a lavish baroque residence fit for royalty.
