Long weekend at Balaton lake
Posted April 30th, 2013 - 5:03 pm by from Ljubljana, Slovenia (Permalink)
Hey there,

My boyfriend and I are coming to Balaton lake for long weekend.

Which are the best locations to stay? To do some hiking, biking, to visit wine cellars, to party?

What about vegetarian/vegan cuisine? Are there any specific restaurants? Or just specific dishes without any animal content?

Your help and advices will be much appreciated!!!

Thank you!!!

Greets from Slovenia ;)

this time of the year you would probably have your best chances around Balatonfüred. The rest of the lake is still in pre-season dream. You can find good hiking routes, restaurants, etc. I have no clue about any veggie restaurant.
Typical Hungarian dishes without meat:
paprikáskrumpli (may contain sausages), krumplistészta, túróstészta, káposztástészta (last three are pastae). (Sorry, I am no vegetarian, so that's all I can recommend.)

Have fun!
