Balatongyörök – Szépkilátó (Lady Hamilton Memorial)
Szépkilátó is a popular spot in Balatongyörök, on the northern shore of Lake Balaton. It offers fantastic views of the “Hungarian sea” and the picturesque landscape that surrounds it. A favourite spot for the aristocratic couple, Prince Tasziló Festetics and his wife Mary Hamilton, this hilltop viewpoint was named Szépkilátó by the writer Károly Eötvös. Thanks to Mary Hamilton the lookout is surrounded by a black pine forest. This fact is honoured by the newly unveiled statue of Lady Hamilton by sculptor Menyhért Szabó.
