    Brush up on your German...

    by RockTadgers Written Jul 5, 2005

    Let's face it, Hungarian isn't the easiest language in the world to get to grips with. And English is less widely spoken in Keszthely than in Budapest.

    However, since half the population of Germany seem to visit for the curative powers of nearby Heviz thermal lake, most people in the town speak German as a second language.

    So I'd recommend printing off a bunch of useful German phrases, or taking a German phrasebook, because German is a hell of a lot easier to have a crack at than Hungarian. This should make life much easier, as English is very much an afterthought here.

    The old house

    I stopped my car in the small village situated on the road in between Nagykanisza and Keszthely, attracted by this smal Ethno Museum. It is very typical Hungarian country house with rooftop covered by the bundles of straw.

    Wine street

    We were lucky to choose the weekend when there was the wine festival in Keszthely. This area is very famous for its wine and the wine-grower offered a lot of very good local wine....
