Balatonfüred has been the first health resort since 1971, when the Füred’s sour water was acknowledged as thermal spa. In the famous Heart Hospital of Füred a lot of people regained their health. Among them was the Indian poet Rabindranath tagore who recovered here in 1926 and the promenade along the lake’ shore was named after him.

Balatonfüred started its progress in the 18th century in the so Called reform age. It became a favourite meeting point of progressive politicians and artists. Lujza Blaha who was the ‘nightingale of the nation’ spent her summer holiday 23 times here. The villa of her works today as a hotel and restaurant. The well known spa doctor, Istvan Huray had a summer house by Lake Balaton. One of Füred’s symbol is the Rounded-shape Church which has got a cupola. In Villa of Jókai there is a permanent exhibition of the writer’s Mór Jókai, showing his life, the furniture and other things of the villa.
