Central Transdanubia

Central Transdanubia, stretching from the Danube to the highland of Lake Balaton, welcomes visitors not just with the royal towns Székesfehérvár and Veszprém, with castles and palaces, historical sights and vibrant cultural life, but with rich natural sightliness, too.

Settlements of Central Transdanubia have had traditions since centuries: even the Romans founded here settlements – just think of Gorsium, Brigetio -, later Hungarian kings established towns that still exist nowadays. Székesfehérvár, Tata, Veszprém – and most of the other settlements – have old traditions, and offer several sights and preserved values for those who visit them.

Everyone who likes golf, the gentlemen's sport, will have a good time in Central-Transdanubia. Komárom, Tata and Alcsútdoboz welcomes the lovers of golf.

Central Transdanubia is an ideal holiday destination for those who enjoy riding, trekking, horse shows and the like, for in addition to being a region full of interesting sights there are plenty of opportunities to take part in horse-related events and activities.

The villages of Central Transdanubia are the perfect antidote to the hustle and bustle of most people's everyday lives. Visitors prepared to venture just a little off the beaten track will be rewarded by charming villages, the picturesque shores of Lake Velence – fishing on the lake is also very relaxing – and, if they take the family into the hills for a day or two, they can enjoy the stunning scenery of the Vértes, the Bakony and the Gerecse Hills. At Mezőföld, however, or in the Mór Wine District, they will be greeted by unspoiled nature, glorious panoramic views, the delights of horse-riding, and now the rejuvenation that is offered by the area's "Wellness" hotels. Body and soul are guaranteed to emerge refreshed. Those who choose to stay in high class village accommodation of course get a closer appreciation of the rural way of life. There is also a wide range of special events and organized activities, such as horse riding and trekking, the grape harvest, sledging, traditional pig killing, and the "wellness" facilities offered by the area's hotels and health centres
