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.
Closer look to the house which is usualy constructed of the wooden elements, while the walls of loam. This is very simple house with one living room, small kitchen where the open fire was and two bedrooms, one for the parents and one for all children.
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.
When you are walking along the Pedestrian sttreet between the Castle and he ity center there is a good chance that you will meet on the way some street musiciand that play classical music that gives the area a special harmony, you can really feel yourself like in the medieval times.
If you fell generous that day you can give them some Forints...
Dont be surprised if you visit the castle of Keszthely in weekend and you see there young coupels who just married or on the way to do it. A lot of them coming to the Castle and doing pictures just before the happy event.
There is funny tree in the courtyard of the Ethno-Museum. Is it nice effort to promote a local craft in ceramics or something else, I couldn't find out.
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....
