the events in 2017!
Szántód and it's surrounding may offer various things to see for those who are interested in shorter as well as longer excursions.
Szántód offers innumerous experiences for those who tend to leave the convinience of the beach and exploring the area on foot.
We have collected the programme selection that awaits the guests on cloudy days:
- The northern shore could be easily reached by taking the ferry where you can visit the famous Tihany Abbey. The unforgettable view of the Balaton is the reward for the ones who decide to visit the place. The Csúcs Hill in Thany becomes purple in every year owing to the flowering of the lavender field. According to this the visitors may have a quick look at the Lavender Visitor Center. On the streets of Tihany the craftworkers are selling their products and you can taste the local dishes almost everywhere in the town. On every Saturday between 8 AM and 14 there is a local market organised.
