"Lake Velence" Velence by pecsihornet

Velence Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 12 photos

Lake Velence is an ideal resort from early spring until late autumn. This lake is rich in mineral substances and its silky water is refreshing and regenerating. The bird reserve, one third of the lake, covers the reed beds. The winds from the Velence Hills enable excellent sailing, and the reeds provide opportunities for fishing. The lake also offers winter pleasures. People skate and sail-sledge on its frozen water. In summer an excursion boat goes from the ports of Agárd and Velence to Szúnyog Island. Velence, one of the oldest resorts, established a yacht club 70 years ago. Protected wine cellars and press houses are found on the sunny side of Bence Hill, and there is a great view from the hilltop to the lake.
