Sitting in a boat with a fishing-rod in your hand when the sun is rising is the experience of a life-time. Catching fish early in the morning is not a bad start to the day. You can also join the local fishermen in their fishing-site to have fun enjoy barbecueing in a friendly atmosphere.
For fishing in the Lake Balaton a licence is necessary. It can be bought in angler shops Gyenesdiás, Madács street or in Keszthely or in Vonyarcvashegy.

Although Hungary is not member of the European Monetary Union, there are fairly many places where euros are accepted.
The Hungarian currency is the Forint (1 Euro = approx. 300Forint). Money exchange is possible in travel agencies, banks and at official money exchange places. Forints can be changed back into foreign currency with the voucher issued when the money was changed.
Do not forget: never on the street!!!!
In the summer you will find mosquitos annoying. They love this climate. There are several lotions and sprays which protect against “szúnyogok”.
