The Balaton region is a popular destination for both domestic and foreign tourists, who can enjoy the many attractions the dispersed small villages and the lake itself have to offer. While the southern shore of Lake Balaton has a major focus on providing attractions and amenities to tourists, with sophisticated beach resorts and services, the northern and western shores gain particular interest among people who find more attractive to relax in quiet and rural surroundings, hiking tours, visiting monuments in beautiful natural settings.
