    Marina and boardwalk

    Marina
    1 more image

    The Balatonfured boardwalk begins at the marina, which is right in the centre of town at the lake. The boardwalk stretches for several kilometers in either direction, though there is more to do along the eastern side. There's a number of souvenir shops along the lake, and further down from the marina are food stalls and stages where there is live music at night. The boardwalk itself is lined with trees and is right beside the lake, so you can feed the snorting swans (really!) and look over to the southern shore of Lake Balaton.

    Tihany

    From Balatonfured You can see Tihany peninsula.

    The ancient Tihany village was founded in the Middle Ages when King Andrew I. founded here in 1055 a burial-place for the royal family and built a monastery, where Benedictine monks were settled. The Abbey of Tihany was authorised in the 13th century to issue official deeds (locus authenticus). During the Turkisch times, in the 16-17th century, the monastery, wich has benn transformed into a fortress, was demolished. It was rebuilt in beroque style in the 18th century and became a symbol of Tihany. A few years ago, the Benedictine monks were again put in charge of the monasetry and the Abbey Museum.
