Some information about...

Lake Balaton is the largest lake of Central Europe with a surface area of 592 square-km. Its length is 77 kilometres and the width ranges from 4 to 14 kilometres. The lake's surface is 104 m above sea level; depth is up to 11 m (mean depth 3.2 m). Since Hungary is landlocked, Lake Balaton is sometimes called the "Hungarian Sea". The Zala River provides the largest inflow of water. The Sio Canal provides outflow as needed.
