What happened? 300 km from Lake Balaton there is another Lake Balaton on the map of Hungary
They are far apart in Hungary, but what can they have to do with each other?
The Hungarian Sea, Lake Balaton, is known in many places not only in Hungary, but also in many parts of the world, and is still an unavoidable place for many holidays. The Hungarian Sea is a famous sight and natural wonder far and wide, which attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists to our small country every year.

In addition to the lake, there is also a Hungarian settlement called Lake Balaton, in Heves County.

How can this happen?
If you know that a Where does the word Lake Balaton come from into the Hungarian language, you will soon be able to get an answer as to why. The name Balaton is of Slavic origin, it comes from the word “blato / boloto”, which means swamp. The Latin name of the lake, Lacus Pelso, is also associated with it, as it means a shallow lake.
Although the Hungarian settlement of Lake Balaton is partly located in a mountainous area, there is also some marshy area nearby, where, for example, according to legends, many Hungarians found refuge during the Tartar invasion.
Thus, it seems that the two have nothing to do closely with each other, only in the names, only in the geographical specificity.
