16/52 weeks of 2018

Nagyvázsony, Hungary.

Between Nagyvázsony and Vigántpetend.

On Saturday I visited Tihany, Nagyvázsony, and Balatonfüred. All located on, or close to, Lake Balaton. The lake itself is the largest in central Europe. In the summers families and tourists flock to the lake and it's surrounding communities to escape the heat and enjoy the natural beauty.

Tihany is a peninsula on Lake Balaton dominated by a fantastic Benedictine Abbey. Inside you'll find historic and artistic treasures and learn how the monks and community harvested the agricultural resources of lavender and grapes to produce oil and wine. The views of Balaton are spectacular and many houses are made of local volcanic stones and have thatched roofs. The Inner lake (Belső-tó) is actually a former volcanic crater. I highly recommend walking the path that circles the lake.

Nagyvázsony is a half hour drive west of Tihany. The main attraction is the Kinizsi Castle which originates from the 14th century. Climb the tower museum to enjoy nice views of the surrounding countryside.

Balatonfüred is the first resort town on Balaton, established over 200 years ago. The sailboats and the 18th century buildings add to the character of the town. And bring an empty bottle so you can fill it with the local spring water.

Thanks to my awesome guides, Mariann and Péter!

My intention was to capture the delicate patterns, bubbles and other imperfections of the glass. The landscape is only there as a backdrop, literally. ;)

Nagyvázsony, Kinizsi vár

NagyVázsony medieval castle near Lake Balaton

A vázsonyi pálos kolostort 1483-ban Kinizsi Pál és apósa, Magyar Balázs alapította. Szerzetesei a közeli tálodi klastromból költöztek át. Templomában temették el Kinizsi Pált (1494. nov. 24.) és felesége, Magyar Benigna második férjét, Horváth Márkot (1508).

 

A szerzetesek 1543-ban Fehérvár eleste után elhagyták a kolostort. Amikor 1552-ben a törökök Veszprémet elfoglalták, az itteni magyar várőrség felrobbantotta.

"Félvén attól, hogy a török beléjek száll."

 

A romok köveit előbb a várban a falak megerősítésénél, később a falusiak házépítésénél hasznosították.

 

1959-ben a falmaradványokat feltárták és konzerválták.
