Balatonfüred is a small town on the north shore of Lake Balaton with 13.500 inhabitants, 130 km away from the capital of Hungary. Near the Lake people start to feel the harmonious blend of past and present at the moment of their arrival. Balatonfüred has very similar climate to the Mediterranean, thats why Balatonfüred and its surrounding settlements are called the „Balaton Riviera”.
The town is rich of historical sights like numerous villas and mansions in the town that contributed to the special beauty of Balatonfüred and made the town famous. The three churches of Balatonfüred arise in the upper part of the town as if protecting its tranquility: these are the Reformed Church, the Catholic Church and the newly built Evangelical Church.
