Velence

Lake Velence, just 50km. south-west of Budapest is approximately 26km squared, half is covered with reeds it helps to maintain the quality of the water.
Early morning on the lake.
The lake offers excellent sailing, fishing and bird watching, the Western end is a nature reserve, a nesting ground for over thirty thousand birds witch migrate here in spring.
Early morning on the lake.
Cat-fish of 20-25kg. are caught here often, the record being over 60 kg I was fortunate to go for an afternoon sail with some friends, sailing between the reeds is a different experience then in the open waters, you can hear the nesting birds just meters away.
Kids on the rocks on the north side of the lake.
If swimming is not your choice, a bike path of 29km around the lake is available, or maybe a clime on the northern side of the lake to the huge granite rocks as if made by man, but it is the work of water, ice and wind over millions of years. Not by design, just by accident I completed just over "one million" steps today and still over a week to go.
