The town of Balatonfüred is located in the county of Veszprém. It is the capital of administrative district of Balatonfüred.
Referred as the “Capital” of the northern bank of Lake Balaton, it is also the oldest holiday resort around the lake. Regarding the number of nights spent at commercial hotels it is the sixth most popular city in Hungary. It is also a major sailboat marina.
The surroundings of Balatonfüred were already inhabited by prehistoric men. The first known residents were the Romans, their presence is indicated on several excavated church ruins and tombstones. The first written record of its name dates back to 1211 and was mentioned on an estate register made by the Abbey of Tihany.
An upswing took place at the beginnig of the 19th century, during the “Reform Era”. The town theatre - constructed entirely of wood - provided a major entertainment for the guests during summertime. In 1831 Sándor Kisfaludy opened the first Hungarian speaking permanent theatre of Transdanubia, built by donations, with the support of Tihany Abbey and the people.
