Overview

Keszthely is located on the western shore of Lake Balaton. Though settled since at least Roman times (the Keszthely culture of Romance pannonian language),
the first historical evidence of the town Keszthely dates from a 1247 document. Since 1421, Keszthely has been a market town.
One of its main tourist attractions is Festetics Palace, which was built in 1745 in baroque style. The Balaton Museum displays geological
and archaeological exhibitions and presents the history of Lake Balaton.
