Lake Velence, Velence

#2 of 16 in Nature in Central Transdanubia
Lake Velence is the third largest lake in Hungary. It is a popular holiday destination among Hungarians.
The lake has an area of 26 km2, one third of which is covered by the common reed. Because of the sunny climate of the area and the shallowness of the lake, it is one of the warmest lakes in Europe: its temperature in the summer may reach 26 to 28 °C.
Lake Velence is located in Fejér county, close to the M7 motorway between Budapest and Székesfehérvár, at the foot of the Velence Mountains.
The lake is a bird reserve.

  • The water is good for the beach buffets have evolved, true less on the public beach, higher in the crowd, but it's still the "our pond"

  • We were spontaneously in the village and then went down to the lake. There are places where fishing and snorting can be done. Dogs are also allowed into the water. Free activity for each of the water likes to recommend.

  • Beautiful lake and a great rowing arena
  • Nice place for a weekend breakout from the daily routine. It has a lot of free beaches. It has camping possibilities, water sports, renting for boats and mini water park. A good place to spend the weekend or holiday with the family.
