About Lake Balaton
Lake Balaton or Balaton in short, is the largest lake in Central Europe, which is situated in the Middle Transdanubian region in the western part of Hungary. The 77 km length and the 14 km width form a 600 square kilometer water surface. The Tihany peninsula divides the lake into two parts, forming a strait – with only about 1 km to sail across – which is also the deepest point of the Lake (11 meters).
