The Hedon Beers of Balatonvilagos - Pubtourist

So far, I wrote about bigger towns of Lake Balaton like Si贸fok and Keszthely. But our popular summer destination is mostly surrounded by smaller settlements with a few thousand or in some cases even only a few hundred inhabitants.

Si贸fok backstage #2 – The daily pub life of Hungary’s summer capital

The pubs of a Si贸fok sized Hungarian town are already various like the colors of the rainbow. It’s big enough to find every possible pub genre, but it’s small enough to find only one or two pieces of every type.
