Zamardi Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 12 photos

On my way from Tihany, crossing over the peninsula ...My tour guide, aniko from PROGRAM CENTRUM, was kind to give me a little tour of this area..(june 29 2006...around 3:30pm)....Zamárdi is a 'large village' near the Town of Siófok (10 km west) on the southern beach of the Lake Balaton.

Near by are the villages of Szántód, Kõröshegy, Balatonendréd villages and Siófok town, Balatonfüred, Csopak and Tihany villages in the northern part of the lake.

.. The name of Zamárdi is mentioned in written documents as far as 1082, then in the authentic certificate of King Stephen the Third dated 1171. ..In the 16th century, the Turkish army totally destructed the villages, and the area was abandoned for a very long time.

The village was revived by Vildebald Grassó and his successor, Ágoston Lécs, both of them abbots of Tihany in the thirties of the 18th century."

Today is a very popular place for summer fun...and as we drove by ,,you could see lots of food stands, rental places for water activities, restaurant and hotels....
