The twin towers of Benedictine Abbey are located on the mountains of the Tihany Peninsula, with trees lined outside. The trail is built along Lake Balaton, with a bird's eye view of the lake area. The weather is clear, the lake is green and the sky is as blue as washing, forming a harmonious and beautiful picture, which makes people linger.
On the Tihany Peninsula, there is a landmark building that is the Benedictine Monastery. He has a church building with two white towers, very elegant and beautiful. It is said that this Benedictine monastery was first built in 1055. It is said that the real body of King Andergus I is still buried in the crypt here, and the view of Lake Balaton from this monastery is particularly good.
Walking up the mountain along the gentle slope, narrow stone steps, and short rows of windowsills with flowers in full bloom, often reminds me of the memories of being in Hallstatt four years ago. A little bit similar. This small island of Tihany must be due to the influx of tourists, so that it will never have the peace and leisure of the past. Therefore, it is understandable that the residents of the small town of Hallstatt reject the endless stream of tourists. When approaching the top of the mountain, you can see the white twin towers-Benedictine Monastery, the iconic building on the island. You need to buy a ticket to enter the monastery (500 HUF for adults, 250 HUF for students). There will be too many large-scale churches along the way, so this one is not visited inside. The viewing platform behind the monastery faces Lake Balaton. The scenery is good. Under the clear sky, white sails are dotted on the blue lake, and birds fly by from time to time. There is also a trio of small bands playing Hungarian music, attracting many foreign tourists to stop. Chinese tourists generally walk in a hurry. From a distance, I saw a small mushroom-topped house at the end of the path, like a small castle. Worried about not having enough time, did not walk over.
The Benetti Monastery with white twin towers is the symbol of the Tihany Peninsula. You have to go up a few steps. After going up there are two roads on the left and right. They are located at the two ends of the main street. Although the main street is very short, if you are in a hurry, Optimistic when going up and down.
The peninsula overlooking Lake Balaton is breathtakingly beautiful and worth a visit
