Balatonfüred is the oldest and most popular resort on the shore of Lake Balaton in Hungary . It is situated on the northern shore, not far from the Tihany Peninsula. Balatonfüred is a spa resort with many thermal springs.

About the city

The center of the spa resort is the square Györy tér with the Kossuth thermal spring. The water in the spring is thermal and slightly sulphurous. On the main square, there is the baroque Horváth's House, where the first St Ann's Ball took place in 1825. This popular event takes place annually in the city. There is an interesting museum in the house that was once owned by the writer Mór Jókai. Near the museum, there is the neo-classical round church from 1846. In Balatonfüred, you can also visit the Red Church from the 18th century and the White Church from 1829. Another interesting part of the city is the so-called Siske, where you can admire nice houses with thatched roofs. In Balatonfüred, there is a world-widely known hospital for healing heart diseases.

Glances into history

The healing effects of the local mineral have been known since the end of the 18th century. In the first half of the 19th century, a spa complex with promenades was built and the town began to grow. In 1846, István Széchenyi launched the first steamship from Balatonfüred on the lake.


The local thermal springs are rich in carbonic acid and are slightly radioactive. The water is convenient for healing stomach diseases, heart diseases and recovering from fatigue.
