Green, green, it’s so green in there!
Our second and last stop during the short Balaton trip was a small village called Szigliget. Actually I am not sure why we’ve chosen it, maybe because of the vineyards, or the volcanic hills. When we got off the train at a tiny station called Badacsonytördemic, it quickly turned out that the buses are quite rare in this area, so our only way to get to Szigliget was just to simply walk there. It was cloudy and the sunny weather from the previous days was gone, but we couldn’t complain, the green fields around us were simply amazing.
After about a half an hour we got to the house where we had rented a room. The owner, as it turned out, did not speak any English, only German, so we had to quickly refresh our high school knowledge in this field. Slowly, adding also a bit of simple Hungarian, we managed to discuss all the details, and we even got to know that the owner actually likes to spend his holidays in Poland. It was not high season yet, there were not too many tourists in the town, and we also got the big house (with its huge garden) only to ourselves.
The whole village is actually one u-shaped road, which meant that getting to some places took us quite a lot of time. After a whole day of walking around we were just too tired to climb to the castle ruins above the town (and yes, we regret it, the view must be amazing), but I hope we’ll get there one day and do it then. Anyway, our stay there was just lovely. So calm and quiet, and so beautifully green, we were there only one day, but it felt like a week-long super relaxing holiday.
