The capital of Lake Balaton.
Keszthely, the capital of Lake Balaton, awaits tourists with eight museums, three beaches and Szigetfürdő. It is a real Mediterranean town, with the picturesque castle of Festetics besides Lake Balaton. One of the many museums is the unique Balaton Museum, which introduces the visitors to the life and history of the lake.
The Snail Parlament is also world famous, but we could go on with the Marzipan, Toy, Hunting or Major Museum and many other valuable exhibitions. The newly renovated, prestigious main square with its parish church (with its unique frescoes) and the newly renovated Balaton promenade is proudly inviting tourists looking for a cozy walk and a pleasant stay.
It is just ten kilometers from Balatongyörök, with easy access by car, bus, boat, train and bicycle.
