In and Around Zalakaros...

There is a wide variety of bars and restaurants and a family of four could enjoy a three course meal with drinks, for approximately 12,000 FT. Next to the spa complex is the local market which sells local handicrafts etc.There is a chemist, post office, bicycle hire, small fairground and a couple of supermarkets, plus various other shops, too numerous to mention. The local nightclub is also near the spa complex and here you can enjoy karaoke as well.The night club is 1.5 km from the villas, so no nosie of the club at the villas. In high season every two weeks, the locals hold wine festivals with food and handicraft stalls and Hungarian entertainment.


Hungarians love to go fishing, and it’s no wonder, because there is a plethora of fishing lakes. The two largest ones are, Kis Balaton, which is only a few kilometres away and Lake Balaton, which is fifty miles wide and stunningly beautiful, about a half hour drive away.On certain days of the year, the Hungarian rowing teams have tournaments on the Balaton, and this is spectacular!

Buffalo reserve of Kápolnapuszta

Buffalo reserve KápolnapusztaIn Kápolnapuszta, situated between Zalakomár and Balatonmagyaród, approximately 80 buffalos live in a reserve. A paved road leads to the reserve. At the reserve there are parking places, esplanades and a lookout turret awaiting the visitors, who in good weather can have a splendid view of the Balaton highlands.


Once it used to be the open water bay of Lake Balaton which in the course of time became a marshy flood area. Since the last century the majority of the water has been continuously drained, and then it was declared a nature conservation area. Today it is the paradise of the birds where aigrettes, cormorants, boat-bills, squaccos, great crested grebes, herons and red herons, coots, reed-thrushes, reed-warblers and owls nest.


The monumentlike building was built in 1772. Its carved, richly armoured main gate and painted ceiling lends a peculiar charm to the building. The baptizing font made of marble and ornamented with coat-of-arms dates back to 1698. On its top, a cue-style cover and statue can be seen. In the church nave there is an ironwork gallery on both sides which was finished around 1890. The frescos were painted by Dorffmaister.


The Hungarian first king, St. Stephen the First, founded here a Benedictine abbey in 1019, and later he placed the centre of the royal county here. To commemorate this event, Zala County erected a memorial column at the place of the late abbey and castle in 1938. Cirill and Metód, who christianized the Slav peoples and created the writing bearing their names, lived here one thousand one hundred years ago. In 1985 a monument was built in their honour with the full figure statue of the Slav apostles which was inaugurated here. Not far from the Cirill-Metód monument are the 1996-built memorial chapel built upon the ground walls of the chapel of the period of St. Stephen, the ruins of the basilica of Récéskút, and the Little-Balaton exhibition house.


The city is situated about 35 km from Zalakaros on the bank of Lake Balaton. The town, which is called the "capital of Balaton", has approximately 25.000 inhabitants.

In the northern part of the square can be seen the Turkish Well, which is named this way because according to local legend its octagonal stone lower part comes from the Turkish period palace.

The lookout turret is located 500 metres from the lake, from where it is possible to have a view of the surrounding area and Nagykanizsa.


Holy church and religious house

Monks belonging to the order of St Paul settled down in the village in 1360. Under Turkish rule their monastery and their church were completely destroyed. Between 1703 and 1744 the Franciscans rebuilt the church with the help of Count Batthyány. The icon of Virgin Mary was found in 1722, while the foundations of the current church were being dug out, according to the legend among the roots of the oak tree. The icon originated from the 17th century which is the size of 40x60 cm and depicts Virgin Mary holding the little Jesus in her arms was respected as a miraculous icon in the 18th century. Who touched it or prayed in front of the icon they were recovered.The relic of St Felix was given to the village as a present by XVÍ Benedict Pope and was brought to Homokkomárom by Otto Kopik, the previous abbot of Celldömölk. The relic of St Felix and the respect of Virgin Mary stood in the centre of the annual festival of the church in the baroque era.The pilgrimage of “Conciliation of love flame and the rose with secretive sense” is organised on 13th of every month. This means a pilgrimage in the whole Transdanubia. In the warm summer months one-two thousand believers arrive occasionally. This festival is visited by a large number of Croatian and Slovenian pilgrims as well.Nowadays "The Eight Happiness Catholic Community" lives in the religious house.
