Lake Tisza awaits its visitors with a variety of programs and attractions: those who want an active recreation can choose a bicycle tour, those who want to relax have plenty of attractions, beaches and wellness opportunities. An amazing biodiversity has now developed around Hungary’s second largest lake, with village tourism around it.
Wellness all year round
Our favorite: Fűzfa pihenőpark és étterem, if Lake Tisza is the destination! The solid, spacious hotel has indoor and outdoor hot water pools. On cool autumn days and summer evenings, every pool is perfect for stargazing. Inside saunas, massages and swimming instructors help you relax.
The pearl of Poroszló is the Ecocentrum, which presents Lake Tisza, along with its wildlife and history. In the basement, we find the largest freshwater aquarium in Europe, with huge native fish species. In its upper levels, you can see smaller animals, amphibians and reptiles. In the park surrounding the building, domestic animals, cormorant feeding, and a playgrounds await the visitors.

Starting from Poroszló, the smaller circle of Lake Tisza is 74 km, the larger circle is 95 km. Visitors usually cover the distance in one day, which, depending on the season, can be tiring with a traditional bicycle. The north-west side of the lake has a varied landscape, and the part of the south-east side running along the endless dam can become boring at the end, so it is worth planning a few stops!
Sights and places to rest along the way:
- Tisza-tavi Vízi Sétány
- Bölömbika kilátó
- Kiskörei víz-és hallépcső
- Abádszalóki strand
With a boat on the lake
One of the most unique programs on Lake Tisza is going for a boat ride! There are several categories of watercraft to choose from, from GPS boat tours to small boat tours that depart from marinas around the lake. It is worth checking the service announcements in advance, as tours may be temporarily suspended due to low water levels or bad weather.
