Transdanubia, also known as Pannonia from its days as a Roman province, has a rich history. It has three UNESCO World Heritage sites at Pannonhalma, Pécs, and Lake Fertõ. The countryside is beautiful boasting a mix of gentle rolling hills, forests, and flat grassy plains with a scattering of mountains, mainly in the northwest. There’s Lake Balaton, Central Europe’s largest freshwater lake, along with the smaller lakes of Velence and Fertő (Neusiedl in German) on the border with Austria. Most of the holidays in Transdanubia are to Lake Balaton, Hungary’s most popular tourist destination outside Budapest. The southern shore of Lake Balaton, with its bustling resorts and shallow warm waters, is ideal for family holidays. The main resorts in the south include Siófok, Balatonföldvár and Zamárdi. Balaton’s north shore is more relaxed with quaint resorts like Balatonfüred, Keszthely and the Tihany peninsula. At Hévíz there’s one of the world’s largest thermal lakes and medicinal spa. There’s also a similar spa at Zalakaros, which coincidentally was discovered while drilling for oil! Also notable are the Villány-Siklós vineyards and the historic town of Koszeg that dates back to the 13th century.
