Tihany is a village on the northern shore of Lake Balaton on the Tihany Peninsula (Hungary). The whole peninsula is a historical district.
The center of the district is the Benedictine Abbey, which was founded in 1055 by András (Andrew) I, who is buried in the crypt. (The founding charter of this abbey is the first extant record of Hungarian language, preserved in Pannonhalma Benedictine Archabbey.) The church itself was rebuilt in baroque style in 1754. The still functioning abbey is a popular tourist attraction due to the historical and artistic significance. It also has the best view of Lake Balaton.
Inside the peninsula you can find 2 lakes (one of them is almost dried out). You can take a trip and visit the peninsula... more travel advice
