Balatonfüred: The town of Balatonfüred is located in the county of Veszprém. It is the capital of administrative district of Balatonfüred. Referred as the “Capital” of the northern bank of Lake Balaton, it is also the oldest holiday resort around the lake. Regarding the number of nights spent at commercial hotels it is the sixth most popular city in Hungary. It is also a major sailboat marina.

History: The surroundings of Balatonfüred were already inhabited by prehistoric men. The first known residents were the Romans, their presence is indicated on several excavated church ruins and tombstones. The first written record of its name dates back to 1211 and was mentioned on an estate register made by the Abbey of Tihany. An upswing took place at the beginnig of the 19th century, during the “Reform Era”. The town theatre - constructed entirely of wood - provided a major entertainment for the guests during summertime. In 1831 Sándor Kisfaludy opened the first Hungarian speaking permanent theatre of Transdanubia, built by donations, with the support of Tihany Abbey and the people.

Sights of interest: On July 26. 1825 János Szentgyörgyi Horváth organized the first Anna Ball in his mansion in honor of his daughter Anna Krisztina. It has become a tradition and a major event, being held every since year . On István Széchenyi’s initiative - a Hungarian Count – the fi rst steamboat of the Balaton named “Kisfaludy” was put into operation in 1846, followed by the construction of a shipyard later on. Another major development period started at the beginning of the 1900’s by filling up the lakeshore reclaiming more land. A promenade was laid out, private villas were erected and the southern wing of the hospital was opened. Following World War II. the next upswing stage started in the 1960’s. In 1966 the XXVII. FICC (International Camping Caravanning Club) Rally took place in the city, which demanded the construction of a camping site for 400 persons.
