Hiking on Mediterranean trails of Tihany:
Although the noise of cicadas and the coniferous forest environment give a Mediterranean character to Lóczy nature trail, it does not wind near the blue sea but the green Lake Balaton. This hike presents the most exciting attractions of Tihany peninsula and offers one of the most extraordinary views in the country.
Tihany Peninsula is like a landscape model: it features various landmarks but at a smaller scale. There is no volcano but there is a lake filling remains of a crater. There is no geyser but there are geyserite cones. There is no sea here and yet pine trees and cicadas imitate an environment typical of Mediterranean seaside. Of course, these analogies are here only to help imagine the atmosphere, however, hiking around Tihany peninsula will be a memorable experience on its own.
