On the opposite side of Lake Balaton, facing Balatonfüred lies a pretty place called Tihany. The Tihany peninsula evolved due to volcanic activity and its remains are the so called geysers. This region was occupied by the Romans for a while and the town was founded by King András I. in 1055. He established the Benedictine Abbey which later became the symbol of Tihany. It is also famous for its lavender fields.
